XML Data Islands are proprietary Microsoft technology, and will only
work in IE. IE does not support XLink. IE does not seem to support
XHTML. I would be surprised if XSLT transformation in the XML data
island would give you what you want.
My suggestion to you would be to have your page in HTML, and use the
"XMLHttpRequest" object to get and post XML data between the server and
client without reloading the page. You need to do more work compared to
the data island approach (you will actually need to get the data, and
create table cells and content yourself), but at least it would work in
IE and Mozilla based products, including Netscape 7.0. There are links
to examples etc. from here: http://www.mozilla.org/xmlextras/
