Workarround: IE11 changing download file extension to .zip

At ClipFlair Gallery, apart from opening a ClipFlair activity in ClipFlair Studio, downloading of an activity (.clipflair) file is also supported.

However, because the component serialization file format of ClipFlair Studio is XML plus media assets packed in .zip archive (with nesting allowed, where components and whole activities can be placed in other activities), Internet Explorer 11 (and probably other browsers too) was downloading .clipflair files as .zip (changing their file extension).

At first, I thought that occured because I was using MIME type “application/zip” at the IIS web server/site settings for that file extension. So then I tried to change it to “application/octet-stream” hoping that one would be treated as an “opaque” data stream.

However, eventually I ended up setting a custom MIME type “application/clipflair” for the file extension “.clipflair”, because even with “application/octet-stream” (as with the “application/zip” that I had before), IE11 was still saving the .clipflair file as .zip (obviously detecting the zip content in the download stream).

HowTo: Group output items using XSL transformation

While trying to generate a single HTML page that will list all ClipFlair activities using XSL Transformations (XSLT), I had the need to group items in 2-column rows.

This is my contribution to other solutions suggested at (if you like it you can vote it up there):

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9908488/xslt-for-each-wrapping-every-nth-item-in-a-div/


Faced by the same problem, that is wanting to output

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col">...</div>
    <div class="col"/>...</div>
  </div>
  <div class="row">
  ...
  </div>
</div>

from a CXML (Collection XML) file (http://gallery.clipflair.net/collection/activities.cxml – the data behind the PivotViewer display at http://gallery.clipflair.net/activity)

I coined up the following, based on other suggestions here, but using "mode" attribute of "template" and "apply-templates" XSL tags instead which make it cleaner I believe:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?altova_samplexml http://gallery.clipflair.net/collection/activities.cxml?>

<xsl:stylesheet 
  version="1.0"
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:cxml="http://schemas.microsoft.com/collection/metadata/2009"
  exclude-result-prefixes="cxml"
  >

  <xsl:output method="html" version="4.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
  <xsl:param name="COLUMNS" select="2"/>

  <!-- ########################### -->

  <xsl:template match="/">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
      <head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
        <title>ClipFlair Activities</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css"/>
      </head>
      <body>
        <xsl:apply-templates/>
      </body>
    </html>
  </xsl:template>

  <!-- ########################### -->

  <xsl:template match="cxml:Collection">
    <div class="container">
      <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </div>
  </xsl:template>

  <!-- ########################### -->

  <xsl:template match="cxml:Items">
    <xsl:apply-templates 
select="cxml:Item[position() mod $COLUMNS = 1]" mode="row"/> </xsl:template> <!-- ########################### --> <xsl:template match="cxml:Item" mode="row"> <div class="row"> <div>----------</div> <xsl:apply-templates
select=".|following-sibling::cxml:Item[position() &lt; $COLUMNS]" mode="col"/> </div> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="cxml:Item" mode="col"> <xsl:variable name="URL" select="@Href"/> <xsl:variable name="FILENAME"
select="cxml:Facets/cxml:Facet[@Name='Filename']/cxml:String/@Value"/> <div class="col"> <xsl:value-of select="$FILENAME"/> --- <xsl:value-of select="$URL"/> </div> </xsl:template> <!-- ########################### --> <xsl:template match="*"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="text()|@*"> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>

the output from the above when run in Altova XMLSpy tool (note that it uses altova_samplexml processor instruction to find the XML data) is:
