the spec says that embedding a stylesheet into a XML document is possible:

After some searching I was able to get the cdcatalog sample below working:
(http://www.stamm-wilbrandt.de/en/xsl-list/cdcatalog.xml if you want to

But it is working for Firefox 2/3 and Opera 9.64, NOT for MS IE6.
I found neither negative nor positive statements on IE 6/7/8 support
of stylesheet embedding while searching the web.

Does anybody now the answer whether any of the Microsoft browsers supports
stylesheet embedding?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="#style1"?>
<!DOCTYPE catalog [
<!ATTLIST xsl:stylesheet id ID #REQUIRED>
<xsl:stylesheet id="style1" version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="/">.
  <h2>My CD Collection</h2>
  <table border="1">
    <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">>
    <xsl:for-each select="//catalog/cd">
      <td><xsl:value-of select="title"/></td>
      <td><xsl:value-of select="artist"/></td>
<xsl:template match="xsl:stylesheet">
  <!-- ignore -->
    <title>Empire Burlesque</title>
    <artist>Bob Dylan</artist>
    <title>The white album</title>>
