Hello again,

I made a small sample piece of XSL that I have proven not to work. The system that provides the XML source is not accessible to the outside world so I don't have a proper URL that I can give you. Any URL should will work fine though except when the url has and ampersand in it...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>

<xsl:output method="xml"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:copy-of select="document(';


Here is a snippet that uses a variable that unfortunately works the same.

<xsl:variable name="DocumentURL">;
<xsl:copy-of select="document($DocumentURL)"/>

So I don't really believe that there is a solution to this but if anyone sees anything or has any ideas I would love to hear about it.

Thanks again for all the help!

Hi Josh,

I have done as you suggested and it works fine with the file on the
local machine but still not with the full URI (I did it with two
different files just to make sure ;). Any suggestions?

I'm stumped. You could send me the XML/XSLT to have a look at, but if it works when you have the file locally but doesn't work when you retrieve it by URL, it's going to be a hard problem to track down.
