What Could Go Wrong?

Because my XML (xyx.xml) file does not have a reference to the XSLT (xyz.xsl) file, which is to transform the XML to HTML, I used a HTML file (xyz.html) below:

And things worked fine for me. When I double clicked on the xyz.html, I was able to view the HTML output. I have the Windows 98.
I transferred my three files (xyz.xml, xyz.xsl, and xyz.html) over the internet to another person. The person (who has the Windows 2000) double clicked on the xyz.html and got a blank page.
Does anybody know what could go wrong? I started studying XML about two months ago. I am lost when things like this happen. Thanks in advance.

Maybe they opened the file using Netscape, in which case that code would not work.
As far as that code goes I've used it in ie but older versions of netscape cause errors. I don't know if that helps.

Ask him to check the Internet explorer version that is using, its always good to install the latest MSXML parser as well.
