  From my tests, yes. But one answer you have received hasn't asked you :-)
why you want to implement your own cache. You have now - this is what I've
tested and there were allready some notes on the list about - XSL ISAPI
Filter 2.1 available from Micro$oft, see

  Read the caching section in this document - stylesheets get in-memory
cached and are valid n minutes where n can be set in
/xslisapi/masterConfig.xml, in <cache cleanup="n" /> tag. No caching means n
is 0 etc. On systems with XSLTemplate object "stylesheets will be
precompiled and cached as XSLTemplate objects for improved performance.
Otherwise, they are cached as XMLDOM documents."

  Well, you haven't provided enough information. :-) And I guess this is
interesting to all listers (having to live with M$ technologies where
clients demand them).
