  • I’ve looked over the repro sample you provided to us and as far as I can tell Chrome and Edge seem to report the exact same data, unless I am overlooking something.

    Which of the three sections are you showing a discrepancy with between Chrome and Edge?

    Thanks for the feedback.

  • Look at the first section “without xsl output” and you can see, that edge transform the “image” node to “img” with namespace xhtml.
    See my picture chrome-edge.png.

  • Thank
    you for the feedback. We have triaged this issue and given other work in this
    area this wouldn’t make the bug bar for coming release. I have marked your
    feedback for further consideration and we hope to get back to it in one of the
    future releases.
