My bad wording... I guess my assumption is that most people are using
XML+XSLT for HTML page building, and that most of them will be
investigating some sort of servlet or in-process architecture to do
so. I'm sure there are lots of exceptions to that rule.

Benchmarks are *hard* to produce really valid data. Often the better
benchmark for a lot of people is which XSLT engines conform most closely
to the spec (to which we all know the answer is Saxon, I think). But they
can be interesting nonetheless.
