using latest trunk build 2002052
the transformation is not working - just the xml being displayed.

works fine with branch build 2002052306
Strange behaviour. 'Transferring data from zvon.org', but I don't get any screen
output. But sourcecode is being transferred...

the zvon stylesheet uses a namespace, which is not a namespace. XSLT does 
exactly the right thing. We generate the elements in the specified namespace,
but this just ain't XHTML. And HTML would be *no* namespace.
This is an evang issue.
Getting rid of the xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40" might be enough to 
fix the display, but the html:script tags need to be in the right namespace,
"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" is the one.

What is curious though is that the site works perfectly with the 1.0 branch

Only XML in browser with the following error message: "This XML file does not
appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is
shown below."

The url is not to the styled page, but to the stylesheet itself (xslt stylesheet
in this case). I couldn't immediatly find a url that used XSLT, if someone can
please add it here.

They still seem to be using the wrong namespace in some cases though. However
they are sending the page as text/html which means that we won't treat it as
namespaced XML at all.

I gotta say, it's pretty sad to see a site that claims to be good at, even
teaching, XML screwing things up so badly.
