OK, I agree. Now let us see in one year from now how many pages 
on the web will provide client-side XSLT ? ( By the way, even 
people do *talk* about 'selectiors' on the servers, that are 
redirecting XSLT-not-aware client to the 'another branch', 
neither Chris, nor Jeni have it *implemented*. Their sites 
support MSIE with XSLT *only*. I mean you can not acccess the 
*same* URL with diffrent browsers and get something in *any* 

I should point out that it was *not*  so with JavaScript 
and frames.

I agree. *However*, those, who were using it was claiming that 
"XSLT on client side it already here!!! Look at that!!!"
This client-side XSLT is such a fuzzy thing, actually.
