XML support in Opera Presto 2.9


Opera Presto supports XML 1.0 and XML 1.1, and can parse and display XML documents.

Binary XML, Binary WML (WBXML)

The Opera Presto parser supports Binary XML; see XML Binary Characterization Working Group.

XML with CSS

In order to display an XML document, a CSS style sheet should be present. Authors can attach Cascading Style Sheets to their XML documents through a processing instruction. Here is a simple example:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="shakespeare.css" type="text/css"?>


Opera Presto does not offer support for XForms; see XForms, but extends support for the HTML5 Forms module as an alternative; see HTML5 Forms module.

XSLT, XPath and XSL-FO

Opera Presto supports XSLT style sheets with the <?xml-stylesheet?> processing instruction; see Associating Style Sheets with XML documents Version 1.0. Opera supports XSLT 1.0 and XPath 1.0 with the following exceptions:

XML namespaces and XML ID

Opera Presto fully supports XML namespaces.

XML Events

Opera Presto supports XML Events and it is used in X+V.
