It occurs to me that XML files that reference XSL style sheets that have
been hacked to work under IE5, won't work under the new Mozilla browser or
if someone writes a plug-in around XT. In other words, you could get around
browser differences in JavaScript programatically, but how would you do
something similar with embedded style sheet references. 

Is this a current problem with CSS?

Subject: Outdated XSL, What are my options?

I have been using the MSXSL object
or using msxsl.cab to generate html file from my existing XML and XSL
document. However, I recently just found out that the Active X object is out
of date. Now I have a XML file with an outdated XSL file which complies to
the early version of XSL protocol submitted in August 1997.

My program requires the user to go through a query form on the web. Upon
submission of the query, the ASP will start retrieving the necessary
information from the server which is in XML format. How could I still
maintain the program in web base and convert the XML and XSL together to
form the HTML for display on the internet?

Can I still continue to use the Active X Object? If not what are the ways I
could do it. I am currently still using IE4 and my company will not move
into IE5 util  a year or more later. What are my options available?
I know that I would have to re-write my XSL code. But after I am done with
that, what are the steps to take generate the html file through internet?

I heard about using DOM from the MS sitebuilder website.

Please advice.
