Isn't it possible to use XSL to present a XML document on a browser?

I understand XSL to present a XML document on a browser that supports
XML(like IE5.0).

Someone said that it was  not possible  to use XSL for the purpose,
because XSL was not recommended yet.

But another told me the following;

You can use XSL to present a XML document SO LONG AS you use it with
CSS2.

The reason is XSL has two functions.

1:making tree construction form the original XML document.
2:giving style to each object of the tree.  

and XSL supports only the former function now.  Instead of the latter,
you must use css2.
So this means that to present a XML document on a browser you have to
use XSL(for making tree construction)AND CSS2 (for giving style to the
document).

Does anyone know which one is correct?
