If there is any way you can do the download to your clients, use XSLT. Not
only is it a superior language, but you're going to find fairly quickly that
there are fewer people that will want to code to the older MS
implementation, it will make your code base easier to maintain, will make it
easier to get code samples off the web (or from books) and you can use the
same XSLT on both client and server. If you can't do the download, then
think about architecting a server side solution instead using XSLT (you
should think about doing that anyway if you're looking at XSLT on Netscape
as well), simply because it makes it easier to control the minor variations
that do exist in the HTML implementations.
