Default IE XSLT for viewing XML

Being blogged just because it shouldn't have taken me nearly as long to figure this out as it did.

How to download the default XSLT template that IE uses for viewing XML. (The pretty looking one with collapsible/expandable elements):

  1. Use Visual Studio
  2. Click File | Open | File
  3. Open C:\Windows\System32\msxml3.dll  (because VS knows what to do with a DLL)
  4. Expand to: XML \ DEFAULTSS.XML
  5. Right-click and Export..
  6. Save it as an .xsl
All done.
