Hello all,

I hope this problem fall within the scope of this list. I have followed some textbook examples, but got an error. Now I have tried a simple example, but still get the same error:

The XML page cannot be displayed Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh <javascript:location.reload()> button, or try again later.
Switch from current encoding to specified encoding not supported. Error processing resource
'http://localhost/test/Transform_Simple.asp'. Line 1, Position 40
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>

I here give my test files fully:

<!-- Asp file -->
set oXml = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
oXml.async = false
set oXsl = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
oXsl.async = false
call oXml.load(Server.MapPath("source.xml"))
call oXsl.load(Server.MapPath("stylesheet.xsl"))

<!-- source -->
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!-- Stylesheet -->
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"; version="1.0">

<xsl:output indent="yes"
doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN"
doctype-system="http://www.w3c.org/TR/2001/REC-SVG-20010904/DTD/svg10.dtd"; />

	<svg width='5cm' height='4cm'>
		<style type="text/css">
			rect {
				stroke: black;
				stroke-width: 3;
				stroke-dasharray: 20, 5, 7, 5;
				fill: #fcf;
		<rect x='0.5cm' y='0.5cm' width='4cm' height='3cm' />

I have tried writing encoding="iso-8859-1" in various places (processing instruction + xsl:output) but nothing I have made seems to work. I don't even have a clue about what's wrong, even less how to solve it.

I am running on msxml - latest version of IE.
