Hi Manos,

Decision was made before I was involved. I would guess that one reason to limit to a single browser was to minimize maintenance and testing. Production version has to be rock solid. IE over Mozilla choice probably due to existing installed base. I use Mozilla myself and love it (though a later post on this topic says its XSLT support is buggy).

Hi Jacob,

In a project I'm involved with, we have XML data which we transform to HTML using XSLT. The plan is to do the XSLT transform in the browser client (IE6.0 - we control the clients and can specify the required browser).
I dont see why you want to limit folks to IE6. Mozilla based browsers handle XML+XSLT just fine. Just send your XML with a style Processing Instruction to the browser. It will work equally well for both browsers. And if you want to control transformations from the client using scripting, that can be done as well.

Hope this helps.
