XSL locatiom


How do you specify an XSL file location on a local disk or network in an XML file?
I have a line:

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="L:\XML\XSL\DTE.XSL"?>

But it does not look at that file location for the DTE.XSL file. I have seen examples using File: in front of the L:\ but they do not seem to work.

RE: XSL locatiom

Thanks. That only seems to work on the local drive. If I specify a mapped drive or a network server it does not work.

The OS shouldn't know if a drive is local or mapped. Are you sure the path is correct and the file is accesible?


RE: XSL locatiom

Specifying file://ServerName as a trusted intranet site solved it. Permissions, permissions, permissions, don't you just love them.
