Thread: browser compatibility with XML/XSL

    browser compatibility with XML/XSL

    Is XML / XSL processing possible with 4.0 browsers?

    I am required to create a huge data driven site, but one requirement is that
    people with old browers must be able to see the site. I cannot limit the
    audience to a particular browsers or only 5.0 browsers.

    Can anyone tell me what parts of XML can be used so that I have XML
    support and flexibility and can make my site work on 4.0 browsers ( both
    netscape and MSIE).

    Thanking you,
    Amar

    With IE: only rudimentary. With Netscape: nope.

    Don't even bother. Let your server do the transforms, and serve plain
    HTML.

    Ciao, Craig

    then I guess, the hype of XML on the WEB is still far to be practical. Cause
    at server side, why do I need XML. I can just use normal SQL and ASP
    statements to serve my purpose. Cause requesting an XML stream data from SQL
    Server and then parsing it from ASP will put additional burden, than doing
    it with recordsets. Isn't it so.

    The value at the server side comes from interoperability with trading
    partners and from clean separation of code from presentation which ASP does
    not give you.
