Default How to process "embedded2.xml" example with msxsl

I occasionally browse this excellent XSLT/XPath book, and wanted to try embedded XSL example (from Chapter 3).

It is mentioned that MSXML (in context of Saxon on .NET) can't process example shown in the book, because "it doesn't notify ID attributes unless you do DTD validation", and as alternative "embedded2.xml" is provided.

I would like to know how can I process this file with msxsl command line processor. For example:

> msxsl embedded2.xml

Error occurred while parsing command line.

Code:   0xc0000069
Missing stylesheet filename.

> msxsl embedded2.xml -pi

Error occurred while loading document 'file://C:\temp\embedded2.xml#style1'.

Code:   0x80070003
The system cannot find the path specified.
Thanks in advance

Support for embedded stylesheets is not universal and I don't know if they are supported in command-line MSXML.

There is some discussion on browser support for embedded stylesheets here:


They aren't widely used, probably because they are not universally supported; but also because it's usual to write a stylesheet for a class of documents, rather than for one document alone.
