Steps to reproduce

Open the attached index.html file. This has script to load in the attached XSL and use it to transform the data file.
This is a very simple XSL that just checks for support of the exslt:node-set and msxml:node-set functions.

In previous versions of Edge msxml:node-set support was true, but it is false in the latest version (tested with EdgeHTML 14.14393)
Other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, etc) support exslt:node-set.

If you open the data.xml file directly in Edge (which will automatically perform the transform) then msxml:node-set is still supported.
It is only when transforming using script that support has been lost.

  • This is a huge issue for us as well.
    Maybe, when bringing node-set back, putting it under namespace would be a good idea.

  • Does it mean that Edge still uses MSXML3 for processing XML stylesheets? O_O
