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.
