Update: Removing the DocType entity in the xslt resolves this problem.

Upon downloading the latest Xml Notepad, I decided to to a quickie transformation. When I did that I got this error message:

Error Transforming XML

XSLT compile error. For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document. To enable DTD processing set the ProhibitDtd property on XmlReaderSettings to false and pass the settings into XmlReader.Create method.

Is this a problem with my XSLT or is it a problem with the editor. Note I can transform in Visual Studio with no problems and my .Net code that consumes the xml and XSLT transforms flawlessly…

Steps to reproduce, note for #4 one will need to create a file for the XSLT.

  1. Select New File button to clear. (Important)
  2. Paste the xml into the Xml area.
  3. Click on the XSL output.
  4. Browse to the XSLT location.
  5. Click Transform.
