You'll find a couple of examples of interactive client-side transformation
in my book XSLT Programmers Reference (Wrox Press). You can't do it without
some client-side Javascript: the basic idea is that when a user action
occurs, the Javascript fires off a new XSLT transformation (typically using
the same stylesheet but with different parameters) and inserts the result of
that transformation into the HTML page.
