See the 'version' attribute on the <xsl:stylesheet> element? It
specifies version 1.1 of XSLT. Version 1.1 of XSLT was a Working Draft
that got halted so that attention could be focused on XSLT 2.0
instead. There are only a couple of processors that implemented the
XSLT 1.1 Working Draft (Saxon and jd.xslt); most processors, including
MSXML3 (the processor that IE6 uses) didn't implement it.

IE6 *does* support a different way of defining extension functions
using <msxsl:script>, but it doesn't support defining them using Java.
Instead, you have to write some JavaScript or VBScript to implement
the function. Have a look at page 134 of Mike's book for an example.
