Actually, Netscape 6.1 does ship with XSLT support. There are some
quirks, but I believe these are pointed out in the release notes.
Embedded CSS is not supported in the document generated by XSLT
processing, but the workaround is to use external stylesheets.
I am pretty sure Netscape 6.1 has better support for CSS than any other
browser out there.

One of the reason text/xsl is supported in Mozilla and NS 6.1 is because
that is what works with Microsoft products
I believe support for the other mime types is going to be added soon but
is not yet in Mozilla or NS 6.1.
