Unfortunately I haven't tried to do this piece of work with JSP (my
employers are M$ partners) XSLT beats the programmatical DOM approach
(using ASP/ASP.NET). Plus XSLT code is much more compact and easy to

Another major advantage of XSLT is that you can do the transformation on
the client (now both IE and Mozilla) if you detect it as applicable.

Of course this is just my view of things ;-)
