Yesterday I was working on some XSLT stylesheets, and was testing them in Internet Explorer. That is, I was applying the <?xml-stylesheet type=”text/xsl” href=”<stylesheet>.xsl”?> declaration to the top of my XML document, and then viewing the transformed output in IE. However, you can’t view the underlying result of the output in IE, only the original XML source.
After scrounging around, I came across this tool from Microsoft which adds a shell to Internet Explorer that lets you view the XSLT output in the browser. Once installed (and don’t forget the last step of installing the *.inf files), you can right click the browser window and do a “View XSL Output”. Nice.

Thank you it helped 🙂
Why one would need a tool to do this? IE must do it itslef, so we can use it producing websites.
