If a website has a policy that its documents must be standards-conformant,
then the fact that IE only supports text/xsl effectively prevents that
website from using client-side XML. That seems pretty serious to me.
While we're on the subject of the xml-stylesheet PI, I'm still hoping that
someday IE will support multiple stylesheets and provide the user with a
menu to select between them.
