No version of Netscape supports XML and XSLT. If you want to use XSLT to
produce HTML and have it work on different browsers, you'll have to do the
transformation on the server and just send the finished HTML to the

Also note that the processing instruction with target 'xml-stylesheet' is
W3C-recommended, but the actual instruction

is IE/MSXML specific. If Netscape ever does support XSLT, it is under no
