[xml-dev] Simple Beginners Problems

It all seemed so easy in the seminar.

This is taking place on an NT4 machine with the Personal Web Server running as a service.

First, after attending the seminar, I installed the Tibco XML developement toolkit, which set itself as the default application for a number of file types.

After attempting to load the xml file unsuccessfully with IE5.5, I downloaded and installed NS6.

At first, it more or less worked. That is, NS loaded the file without performing any of the formatting from the xls file. I could not find any evidence that either the dtd or the xls were being read. As a matter of fact, it displayed the file as if it were an html file; one long string of the text from between my tags.

My problem has, meanwhile gotten worse, in that neither NS nor IE want to display the file now and display download dialog boxes. That is very likely very off topic in this forum but if anybody has a suggestion there, it would be appreciated.

Feel free to send me off to someplace more suited to this question. Scanning the archives has shown me that the posters here are generally substantially beyond the point I am stuck at.

I have placed all three files in wwwroot. The xml file starts with:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE bltgfx SYSTEM "bltgfx.dtd">
<?xml-stylesheet href="bltgfx.xls" type="text/xls"?>

The dtd file contains no document information blocks (I've never seen any in any of the tutorials, references and specifications).
And the xsl file starts with:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xls-stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" version="1.0">

Thank you for your time.

Best regards,
