I am currently using IE5 to render XML with XSL, but many of the folks on
here use a combination of XP and XT by James Clark.  You will need to use
Java if you want to make html on the fly out of XML+XSL.  When I start using
XT&XP, I will be using a Perl script to grab the html from XT, but you could
use nearly any language, like C, Java, Python, PHP(?), Tcl, or even shell
