Intranet users who have standardized on IE4 (and we do business with several
large companies for whom this is the case) can use XSL now, and nothing CSS
has can meet those needs, yet.

I'm as eager as the next person to see widespread and rapid implementation
of W3C Recs. Experience has taught me this is never as fast a process as I
would like, and so I'm not averse to using whatever best suits my needs that
is available now.
