This question is about using the old data island with Microsoft Edge. To simplify my question, I found the following simple HTML example for binding XML data to a table from a Microsoft page with this link:
I also added the meta tag in the head section of the HTML for emulating the IE7. However, the data binding does not work and the table fields are not populated by the XML data. As far as I can understand, Microsoft expects the following xml binding code to work correctly.
According to the Microsoft, the IE=EmulateIE7 in the meta tag emulates Internet Explorer 7 when a doctype with right declaration is used. In the past I did not have a problem with binding the xml data to a table even though I did not pay attention to the correct declaration of the doctype.
Could anyone tell me:
1- why dso data binding to the table is not happening? If the data binding happens, then I expect to have also access to the recordset.
2- What is the correct declaration of the doctype for this HTML page?
Thank you for your help.
I saved the following code in testXML.html file and loaded the page with Microsoft edge browser. No data binding with the table happens.
