I would check out the following URL:


If the link changes for some reason, the title of the Extreme XML article is "My
XML, Your Browser".

It describes using the IE5 XML libraries on the server with ASP code to detect
if the requesting browser support XML. If it does, it ships XML with an XSL
stylesheet. Otherwise it runs the XSL process on the server side and ships
generated HTML to the browser. Pretty cool stuff.
