  I can think of using ASP or Servlets to do it, but that is platform
  dependent and i don't want that. Is there another way?

If you are doing it on the server you only have the one platform to
consider, the platform running your server. There are loads of
possibilities, from hand coded servelets or cgi-bin scripts to entire
publishing frameworks such as cocoon that build in XSLT transformations.

In addition to server transformations happening "on the fly" with these
kind of server technologies, another very common technique is to run the
transformations "offline", generating a set of html files using a
command line processor such as saxon or xalan etc then just serving the
generated html (or pdf of whatever else is generated)  as normal 
files. This is how many of the W3C dcuments are produced. The
specifications of, at least, XSLT, XPath, MathML, ...
are produced by XSLT from XML sources, but the server is just serving
static pre-generated files.
