On my Arch Linux machine, I have the latest Google Chrome (Chromium), version 5.0.342.8 (42697), installed. But it can not read XSL yet.
What is XSL? XSL is The Extensible Stylesheet Language Family.
For detail:

XSL is a family of recommendations for defining XML document transformation and presentation. It consists of three parts:

XSL Transformations (XSLT)
a language for transforming XML.
the XML Path Language (XPath)
an expression language used by XSLT to access or refer to parts of an XML document. (XPath is also used by the XML Linking specification)
XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO)
an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics.

Source: XSL by W3C.

Since my Web page at Dani Iswara .Net has these:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="/w3c/mathml.xsl"  ?>

related to Mathematics on the Web using MathML, standards by W3C, Chromium 5.x was failed. I can not open the blog using that browser this time.

Google Chrome (Chromium) version.

Figure 1. Previous Chromium 5.0.307.11 (39572) on Arch Linux. Now, I have the latest version 5.0.342.8 (42697). Still failed.

Previously, it works fine on Google Chrome 4.x with the same machine.

On Arora, a GTK+ and WebKit-based Web browser, I had the similar problem. It only shows text-based content without the layout.

My Arora version.

Figure 2. Arora 0.10.2 using WebKit 532.4.

So, this very simple layout may not accessible on some browsers though. Old Web site technology?

The same think happened on this unimportant blog. Since I decided to serve this Weblog using application/xhtml+xml for the competent Web browsers and text/html for the rest. Sorry. :)

    Midori 0.2.4, a GTK+ and WebKit based browser read this page as XHTML 1.0 Strict served as text/html.

    It works fine with Google Chrome-beta 5.0.342.7. But the xsl still not loaded. Check it at MathML post. Compare with the latest Opera and Firefox. View the source code. :)

    This is using Chromium 5.0.342.8 (42697). Still, cannot read my XSL. :(

  4. Opera lebih strict - Unessential Weblog

    […] dibanding Firefox (bermesin Gecko) dan Google Chrome (bermesin WebKit). Google Chrome versi terkini belum bisa membaca berkas XSL. Untuk amannya, lebih disarankan memakai entitas numerik. Do not share on:, Digg, […]

  5. MathML will be supported in WebKit - Unessential Weblog
