XSLT not closing XHTML tags question
I have an XSL file that is being applied to an RSS feed, and it works great except for 2 things: 1.) XSL doesn't close the <img> tag for xhtml even though I have it being closed in the XSL file (I've tried <img /> and <img></img>). This blows my xhtml compatibility. 2.) Also, the RSS feed has a namespace "dc", how do I extract data from the elements have a dc namespace?

remove button
How can I remove the Save and Close, or Save and New button on a phone call activity? Hi Troy, You could find out the location of the buttons via Javascript and then hide these buttons. Though this is relatively hard to do and unsupported, it can be done. Another approach, which in my opinion is a lot better, would be to remove the rights for users to create, delete and eventually update the entity phone call. You can do this in the security roles in the settings section. Hope this helps, -- Ronald Lemmen - MSCRM MVP Avanade Netherlands "Troyz...

Skip MsgBox in BeforeUpdate if Save Button Click = True
I have 3 buttons on my form Add Record, Save Changes, and Cancel/Refresh. They work fine. However, I put a confirmation msgbox in the BeforeUpdate event, because users are able to use the record selectors to move to another record forcing the beforeupdate/afterupdate events. From the msgbox the user can save changes, cancel changes or return to the record they were editing. That works fine too. My issue is the user experience of having to press two buttons to save changes first on the form and then the msgbox that fires in BeforeUpdate. I'd like to have some sort of conditional...
