I'm trying to write a xsl for my xml documents.

As I'm not an expert in xsl, I wanted to start from an example.

I'm working with ie5b2.

I found an example at this address :

I can browse it perfectly.

Then I decided to copy this file on my local disk.
I also copyed the dtd and the xsl files on my local disk.

But when I browse the local copy, msxml generates an error :

The XML page cannot be displayed 

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error
and then click the Refresh button, or try again later. 

MSXML error detected: 80070005 Line 4, Position 1 


I tried with another example from
and encountered the same problem.

Next, there was the same example but with css.
This time, I could browse my local copy without any problem.

So :

What can I do to browse xml files with xsl locally ?

thank you for your answers
