I enjoy the Mozilla builds, but I'll certainly admit that they aren't _yet_
a 'major browser'.

Sad but true. I've been amazed by how incredibly slow (and/or broken)
client-side development for XML has been.
For right now, I'm still telling people to use HTML for Web delivery. The
CLASS attribute and well-formed can be awfully handy for the conversion
down the line (of both docs and style sheets), but XML on the client is a
tantalizing fantasy for now.
