That's not true. I tried both with XSP (in AxKit) and experience shows that 
it is far less error prone to produce a simple XML structure which is then 
transformed to XHTML than to produce XHTML directly. In fact, centralising 
XHTML in the templates and deleting it completely from code is the reason why 
I moved to XML/XSP/XSLT, and the reason I'm happy with it on the server side.

However, given proper thought most dynamic documents can be cached one way or 
another, and in any case doing XSLT on the client side is imho a bad idea.
