XForms via XSLT applied in browser

Jaroslav Pullmann-3

  Hello,
  one could choose to generate a default XForms view when accessing the instance data
  through an XSLT- and XForms-capable browser with the "xml-stylesheet" PI attached:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="generate_default_xforms_view_for_this_data.xslt" ?>
<instances>
  <instance id="first"> ... </instance>
</instances>

  While this approach works with XSmiles, the XForms page is not populated with instance data
  when viewed with Firefox/XForms plugin, version 0.86 on Linux, AMD64.

  Output of the same transformation applied externally is displayed correctly.

  Will XForms be interpreted by the plugin in this scenario, with a client-side transformation in between ?

  Many thanks for you suggestions
   Jaro

See this bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=294612

A client-side XSLT transformation will cause XForms not to be rendered
correctly. I don't see a fix coming up soon either, although we
appreciate any contribution :-)

 Hello Philipp, Manfred,
  many thanks for the explanation. The Firefox XForms plugin is my
 favourite interpreter, hopefully this bug will get fixed sometime.
  Best regards
