Re: [xml-dev] XML support in browsers?


I'm in charge of XSLTForms project which is a client-side XForms 
implementation based on XSLT 1.0 to convert XForms to (X)HTML+Javascript 

XSLTForms transformation is complex and uses almost every feature in 
XSLT 1.0. Curiously, FireFox is the only one still not implementing the 
namespace axis while workarounds have to be found for passing fragments 
as parameters for named templates with Opera, but that's all what I 

For "standard" XSLT code, no difference is seen between browsers and 
compatibility problems I detect between browsers are always located in 
the Javascript parts (event management,...).

XSLT 1.0 support in browsers is not a problem anymore, in fact. Except 
Konqueror, every common browser supports XSLT 1.0. Even IE5.5, because 
of MSXML, correctly performs the XSLTForms transformation.

The transformation by itself is very fast too, because it's done by 
compiled instructions. So relatively limited clients can still perform 
transformations (XSLTForms has been tested with iPhone too !).

 From XSLTForms point of view, XSLT can be considered as a very good 

That's why I encourage you to test your transformation with different 
browsers. I'm optimistic about this.

Don't hesitate to contact me for further informations.
