Sort of. Hardly anyone is going to put anything on the Web that depends on
an Active-X control, so you can't really render XSL directly in any
browsers. What you can do is convert XML documents to HTML, but you could
always do that with Python, Jade, Java, Perl, etc. XSL's real value will
be as a ubiquitous standard that you can depend upon. Right now it's just
another batch processor in a crowded field.
