Yes, I did. So, that does not help. But it's the right way. ;-)
I found a forum where one of the microsoft developers explained that it has something to do with the differences of XML and HTML. If the source is XML and it is processed through a XLST processor, the iframe is in a different rendering mode and those transparency things won't work. Solution: After loading the page in a hidden frame you have to copy the source via "innerHTML" into the right iframe. That works. But it's a stupid work-around, because scripting does not work. That's the next problem.....

Or did you make other experiences with that? Thx for your answer...

Please ensure that the output type of your XSLT document is HTML.

<xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>

Hi!

Did anyone encountered the following problem:
If you use an IFRAME with a transparent background (allowTransparency="true"...) and a "normal" HTML Source, everything will work fine. The background is transparent.

But if you use the same IFRAME with a XML Source transformed by a XSLT process (leading to exactly the same output) it won't work!?!?!?!?!

Does anybody know why and - especially - how to get that working?
