Amazon Web Services XML transformation

XSL transformation not doing what it's supposed to

I've been trying to parse an XML result from AWS into HTML. Instead I get a lone line of text. I've tried messing around with the namespaces with no luck. Surely it can't be that complicated!

The link below should do the whole job for me as it includes the 'Style' attribute with the value:
'http://webservices.amazon.com/xsl/aws4/item-search.xsl'

As you can see, this is a stylesheet directly from AWS itself!

link [webservices.amazon.com]

What am I doing wrong?
Ta!

jcamorgan,
I haven't used amazon's transformation services, all I have used is just their XML feed, then I apply the transformations on my server. Have you considered going this route?

Hi,

Not yet. I was hoping to be able to avoid having to jump through all those hoops. XSL is so much quicker to implement!

thanks for the reply though!
