Exactly what you want to do is being done by Xopus (
Currently the site isn't much as they are separating the product into both
Open Source and commercial versions. I don't see a download right now; you
can ask questions on the mailing list, which is full of helpful people.

What Xopus does is download the XML and perform client-side XSL
transformation. The stylesheet is selectable via a menu (which is
implemented in Javascript) so you can get multiple "views" of the data. All
Xopus features are available in Mozilla as well as IE (they've written a
compatibility library).

By the way, Xopus can also let you edit the content (live in the styled
page, by reading your schema and knowing what's editable) which is
mind-blowingly awesome. But you don't have to use this feature.
