To use XSLT 2.0 you need to put your code through an XSLT 2.0 processor such
as Saxon.

Unfortunately there are no client-side (browser-based) XSLT 2.0 processors
yet (and may not be for some time).

I wouldn't recommend using client-side XSLT to beginners. It's a pretty
tough way to learn the language - the diagnostics tend to be poor, and it's
hard to get a clear separation in your head between what the XSLT
transformer is doing and what the browser is doing with the result.
