   RE: [xml-dev] XHTML modularisation causes strange error with MSXML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The issue isn't validation, so much as being able to simply parse the 
documents. MSXML in IE throws a fatal error when encountering PEs that it 
thinks haven't been declared in the appropriate place (due to the 
modularized structure of the DTDs).

The less than politic answer has always been that IE doesn't support XHTML, 
so it's not a problem anyone is willing to solve.

That's shortsighted, of course, in that XML DTDs can be heavily 
parameterized as well, having nothing to do with XHTML, and those would 
fail as well.
