Even though the performance of XML/XSL on the client side is exemplary, its
working on the server side is also equally good. Recently I had to
implement a XML/XSL system, in which I had used the application Server
Enhyda. The requirement was that all the browsers, regardless of whether
they support xml/xsl or xml/css, should be able to display an xml content.
For this I used  Saxon on the server side and created dynamically the HTML 
content from the XML using  XSL and the result was very good. Since I
had generated the HTML on the fly I need not worry about whether the
browsers support XSL or CSS. I am convinced that XML/XSL is going to work
in real-time applications.
