Hi Corey,

Most probably the object, to which you're transforming is of type

However, your transformation uses:

> <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>

which creates html output -- not a well-formed xml document.

The exception is due to the fact, that a non-well-formed document
cannot be loaded into a XMLDOMDocument.

The solution is to use:

<xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>

Then at least IE doesnt have any problems with the generated:

<img src="images/9.jpg" />
