hey hugh,

thank you for that! i didn't even know, that the umlaut-characters cannot be used with their ascii-entities...

my problem is, that the html-code generated by the xsl is not valid.
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; CHARSET=iso-8859-1"> must be closed in xhtml like <meta content="nope" /> with a slash. that's what firefox does (Webdeveloper Bar -> View Generated Sourcecode). so i'd like to know how i can check out if that's the normal case in xsl-parsers.

the error http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Ftest.my-taxi.com%2Fst%2Findex.xml is ok - there's no DTD defined. that's ok.

cheers, henry  :)

When I tried the W3C validator on your source it compained about the umlaut characters in your xml.. not belonging to
the encoding="iso-8859-1 .  When I replaced the a, o and u umaut characters with their respective entities - then it got to the next set of errors.  Is there where it was hanging up for you? 
    small a, umlaut mark     &auml;     &#228;
    small o, umlaut mark     &ouml;     &#246;
    small u, umlaut mark     &uuml;     &#252;

hello there!

i'd like to ask, wether my project to be found under


is correct and wellformed.
it happens that w3c-validator does not think so.

in addition to that i would like to ask if XSL really gives out <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; CHARSET=iso-8859-1"/> when you paste this in the XSL-file.
according to my webdeveloper-bar in firefox the produced xhtml-sourcecode ist "<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; CHARSET=iso-8859-1">" (Attention: Without the closing slash at the end)
you guess what my problem is with that.

thank you for helping links or comments!

greetings from germany,
