While writing post "[xsl] xsl-url -- passing xsl:variable's to imported
stylesheets in XSLT 1.0"
I was interested in cross browser XSLT processing.
At that time I thought that having it work on <i>Firefox</i> and
<i>Internet Explorer</i> might be enough from a (desktop/laptop) browser
market share point of view.

Last week my old cell phone died and I had to buy a new one.
Unfortunately the shipped browser hangs the cell phone on many Web pages my
old (WAP 2.0) browser displayed easily.

Last night I looked for a solution and found it in the "Opera Mini" Web
http://www.opera.com/mini/Opera Mini

Playing around with it I was really surprised to recognize that it even
supports XSLT 1.0 as well as the exslt:node-set() function, see the "screen
shots" I took here:

This browser is for me the "cross browser" XSLT 1.0 extension of my new
mobile device.
(Interestingly the complete Web browser application (4.2.0) with XSLT 1.0
support is of size 126KB only!)
