Default Transform XML with XSLT in JavaScript Mozilla


I'm trying to transform XML with XSLT in Mozilla and it doesn't seam to work.

All the XML Data is stored in a Data Island inside the HTML site I call the JavaScript from.

Here's what I've already done

So I can use the loadXML() Funktion in Mozilla I extended the Document class as told in http://www.webreference.com/programm...per/index.html

Document.prototype.loadXML = function(strXML) {
        //create a DOMParser
        var objDOMParser = new DOMParser();
        //create new document from string
        var objDoc = objDOMParser.parseFromString(strXML, "text/xml");  
        //make sure to remove all nodes from the document
        while (this.hasChildNodes())
        //add the nodes from the new document
        for (var i=0; i < objDoc.childNodes.length; i++) {            
            //import the node
            var objImportedNode = this.importNode(objDoc.childNodes[i], true);            
            //append the child to the current document
        } //End: for
    } //End: function
And also extended the functionality to transfer it back to XML and added the xml attribute

    * add the xml attribute to the node class
    * Everytime the .xml attribute is called it will be transformed to string
    Node.prototype.__defineGetter__("xml", function () {
        var oSerializer = new XMLSerializer();
        return oSerializer.serializeToString(this, "text/xml");
Now I'm creating 2 Dom Documents and load the xml Data for the XML and the XSLT.

    objSrcTree = document.implementation.createDocument("", "", null);  
    objXSLT = document.implementation.createDocument("", "", null);  
    objSrcTree.async = false;
    try {
        alert("loadXML failed in Mozilla");
This works gread. An alert(objSrcTree.xml) or alert(objXSLT.xml) show's the 2 Documents :)

Now I create the XSLT Prozessor and try to transform
    objXSLTProc = new XSLTProcessor();

    try {
        var resultDOM = objXSLTProc.transformToDocument(objSrcTree);
        var sResult = resultDOM.xml;
        alert("XSLT Transformation failed");
He's in the try block because I don't get the alert("XSLT Transformation failed"). On debugging it runs over it and alert(sResult) shows an empty document. Document because alert(resultDOM) gives "XML Document Object"

What am I missing???

Spanky :mad:

It depends on what your XSLT code is. Maybe it's not returning anything.

The xslt should be ok because IE is working with it fine. It's an Mozilla Problem. It also works in Mozilla if I use the XSLT as a file and don't embedd it in the HTML.Did this for testing.

But as Data Island it's not working!!

Need help on that
