Hi -

I have an xml file and an xsl file. I am able to view the local copies on my computer. But when I transfer them to my web site, I get an error shown below. I am using IE 6. Can some one tell me why this problem occurrs? Thanks!

Hi Lasse -

I have pasted the error below. It says in Line 1 and character 420 but line 1 in the xml file does not have as many characters.

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

A name contained an invalid character. Line 1, Position 420

Are you sure all the xml files were at correct location in your xml file.
If so , if the xml and xsl code is very small then can you post it here using UBB code tags ?

Hi Balaji -

The xml file that I am using is too huge to post it here. And I am sure that xml file is well formatted also the xsl file.
I have pasted the initial lines below. Let me know if I have to post anything else.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="Mystyle.xsl"?>

This is the namespace I use in the xsl file-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
