Hi guys,

hope you can help with this easy question, because it's confusing the hell
out of me.

I was getting a (The style sheet does not contain a document element. The
style sheet may be empty, or it may not be a well-formed XML document.)
error. I know this is due to an &copy; tag I've got in there, that I just
want to pass to the HTML page. Now, I can get around the processing problem
by using the &#169; tag. This does in fact produce a copyright character in
the source of my HTML, but, the character is NOT being displayed by the
html. I think the only way around this is to push &copy; direct to the html
source, without it being converted into the C character by the XML parser.

no no; &copy means nothing to the browser natively. if u are using entities; your &copy; entity should be properly defined in a dtd or doctype tag.

using &#169 should give u the correct copyright symbol

first off does the following listing work in your browser


it should, if it doesn't something wrong with your browser ( maybe char encoding ).

some steps to do
a) to make sure your output is html use the <xsl:output method="html"/>
b) make sure your encoding attribute of xml and xsl is correct, set to utf-8 or iso-8859-1
c) your can define doctype-public and doctype-system in xsl:output tag
d) goto faq
