Inconsistent results was a problem in the testcases, and I just fixed 
it.  Thanks for pointing it out. The website may take a few hours to update.

Mozilla does not preserve the XML declaration in the DOM (strictly 
speaking, the DOM has no support for it; IE puts a processing 
instruction node in its place). Also, some newlines may disappear/move 
in the prolog when Mozilla parses and serializes an XML document via 
DOM. If you see something else happening please let me know.

XSLT is supported since Netscape 6.1, but it is still relatively new 
implementation. There has been work on creating a comprehensive guide 
detailing Mozilla's XSLT support but I don't think it has been published
