If the solution to posting documents on the web involves using script
code to load up specific implementations of DOM and specifc
implementations of XSL then that _is_ fatal to the web as an open medium
for exchanging documents.

If XML was designed specifically for the purpose of distributing
documents over the web in an open manner, why should I have to front
_every_ XML document by an HTML page with some script that tries to
second guess every conceivable DOM/XSLT implementation with which the
document might be used?
