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

Concerning the lack of namespace axis support in firefox, there is a bug fixed : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94270 but waiting to be loaded. The last problem is to say if the XSLT expression :

<xsl:value-of select="string(count(nsa:data/descendant-or-self::*/namespace::*))"/>

on that test :

<nsa:testsuite xmlns:nsa="http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/xslt/namespace-axis">
    <nsa:test id="20">
        <nsa:assertion expectedvalue="3" uri="http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#namespace-nodes">The
            'nsa:data' element sub-tree has a total of 3 namespace nodes.</nsa:assertion>> <nsa:data>
            <x xmlns:edi="http://ecommerce.example.org/schema">

must return 3 nodes or 8 , but that is a minor problem I think.

There are still lots of performance issues triggering XSLT in the browser, and in firefox it freezes the whole navigation, which is difficult to accept. I think performance stays the major issue of XML against JSON, used on the client side. Maybe we could trigger XSLT with options which reduce processing time, like disabling namespaces support, or using streaming capabilities.

Hi Robert,

Opera not handling the document function, but really, who cares?
Opera is not handling the document() function correctly but it exists.

For XSLTForms (http://www.agencexml.com/xsltforms), my client-side XForms implementation, external schemas are parsed using the document() function. Opera succeeds in loading the external file but there is a confusion at the attribute level : when the namespace definition (let's say xmlns:xs) is written before the @targetNamespace, the @targetNamespace is unseen while xmlns:xs is presented as an attribute (when the namespace definition is moved to last position, it works...) !

Best regards,
