It's true that the javaScript interfaces to XSLT are sucky.  I
think this an area W3C (i.e. us) should have standardised.

This doesn't mean no-one is using XSL.  The popular JS libraries
don't support PNG or JPEG images either - try asking for the
number of unique colours in the image, or a histogram, or even
the actual image dimensions - but it would be crazy to assumes this
means that images are not used on the Web.

The biggest change recently was that Opera 8 and later support
client-side XSLT.  One does have still to support server-side
translation for things like the google Web crawler, and maybe mobile
devices.  Netscape Navigator, IE, Mozilla, all supported it for years.

So I think we may see increased uptake.
