Richard:

Just tested the URL from home; the XML file is found, but will not
display owing to an oversight on my part.
There is a reference to the location of the XSl file in the XML, but as
I've been tesing the files locally up to this point, I've included a
relative rather than an absolute link. Thus your browser is unable to
properly cahce the XSL file. I'll fix that this afternoon.

In the meantime, try *typing* the URL in the address line. Unless I'm
missing something that ought to work.

My experience also with the beta, and why 157.252.227.46/ead/ead_xml.xml
is not directed to the DTD.
So the question is "does IE5 validate or not; and if it does why is it
not returning an error?"

I tried downloading brown.xml posted by Paul Kiel and opening that file
in ie5.0. The following error resulted:

"A string literal was expected, but no opening quote character was
found. Line 187, Position 67

           "ISO 8879-1986//ENTITIES Added Latin 1//EN"            >"

which does not look unfamiliar from the IE5b2 days. Looks like
validation is local only?
