I have an XSL transformation being applied to an XML recordset containing
approx 400 records.  I have the xsl transformation specified in the XML.
When I view the XML page in IE 5 the page takes approx 20 secs to load.
(This is great and all is well with the world!).  How I really want to use
this xml is in an asp.  In my web application I have the same XML as before
being returned and I am performing a response.write on that XML string.
When displaying the XML dynamically like this the page takes approx 7
minutes!!!!!! to load.  Why is there this difference in performance?  When
using response.write on a string of the same length the string is displayed
almost instantaneously.  Is there another way to display the XML
