An XML file is displayed correctly on IE, but Mozilla complains:
Error loading stylesheet: An XSLT stylesheet does not have an XML mimetype:
The culprit is the Apache 1.3.31 server. Alexey Smirnov proved that to me by running the files succesfully from an Apache 2.0.54 server. Also I was able to run the files correctly from my local hard drive. I looked around the web and I found the following (in biglist.com):
You may have to change the web server configuration to define the MIME type of files with a .xsl extension. Netscape is much stricter about using the MIME type notified by the server than IE is. Michael Kay (of http://www.saxonica.com/).
Furher evidence found from Anne
van Kesteren's site. By changing the name of the style sheet from, say,
style.xsl to style.xml and the reference in the XML file from
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="minimal.xsl"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xml" href="style.xml"?>
the files are displayed correctly on Mozilla, although no longer on IE. However this is a hack and the correct solution is to change the server configuration.
Note of 2/27/06: I logged-in in my site and added a MIME type text/xml for .xsl files and that solved the problem.
For those interested here are two files I have used.
A trivial XML file (source below)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="minimal.xsl"?> <message>Literal Results (Maybe)</message>
The style sheet (source below)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> <xsl:output media-type="text/html"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <html> <head> <title>HTML Output</title> </head> <body> <p>TEST 5</p> <p><xsl:apply-templates/></p> </body> </html> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>
