However, If you plan on moving your XSL transform to the client sometime in the future, then the question is like "How do I obfuscate my super-clever HTML?". And believe me - that way leads to madness <MADNESS view="source" href="http://www.nationalbank.co.nz/calculators/default.asp" />
Why? Because you have to provide: the encrypted code, the decryption engine, and the decryption key. So all the person at the client side is read these, and decrypt the code.
Think of it this way: the web browser needs to understand it eventually ...
