Throwing the xml file at IE, you should then see the output.. html or otherwise.
I know there is a utility that will add "View XSL Transformation" to the context menu in IE, but I cannot find it.
Do you have a direct link to it?
I think that different versions of IE treat XML/XSL differently - to view my transformed XML with an attached XSL stlesheet i needed IE6, IE5 only showed the XML data.
You might have IE6 in which case your problem is something else but my IE6 shows transformed XML straight up!
The transformed XML+XSL(=HTML for you) should be what you see in the main browser. View source you see the XML.. to get the XSL I've grabbed files from the temporary internet folder before now but not seen a utility to display both XML and XSL source.. though it would be useful.
This may be the tool you were looking for "View XSL Transformation" in IE [heima.olivant.fo] - towards the bottom of the list there.
Basically, it is a driver, believe it or not, an .INF file that when installed, will add "View XSL Output" and "Validate XML" items to the internet explorer context menu. The view source only shows the XML regardless of whether or not it is attached to an XSL file or not.
Thanks for your help,
