Obviously depends on your server, but if it's IIS then have you
considered putting the IE5 control onto the server? We've got it going
here quite nicely. The script checks for IE5 browsers, and sends the
XML/XSL separate if it is. Otherwise it merges the XML and XSL.

If the data is not that dynamic - say the XML pages are not coming from
a database, or the data changes infrequently, then you can speed up the
whole process by using Content Replication from Site Server to take a
snapshot of the site. This is the same as what your EXE would achieve,
but a bit more flexible, I think.
