I'm working on a similar project, though sadly I can't make any of it public
yet, as it will be initially geared towards an extranet site with selected
customers. Hopefully I can convince my management and our web team to make this
publicly available at some point.

Anyway, I too would be interested in seeing how people are handling the browser
problem. Does anyone have any samples of the same XML rendered both with IE5+XSL
and Mozilla+DOM+CSS? I'm not talking about a simple stock sorting application
either, I would like to see samples with complex documents, hopefully ones that
don't just use the HTML namespace for everything that CSS can't handle easily
(i.e. links and graphics).
