No version of Netscape supports XSLT.

No version of Internet Explorer prior to 6.0 supports XSLT,
unless you go download and install an updated msxml DLL in
"replace mode", which is sometimes a painless procedure and
sometimes a major ordeal.

It is possible to use the <object> element in IE 5.0 and
above to automate the process of installing an updated msxml
DLL in "side-by-side mode", and once that is done, one can
use IE-specific client-side scripting to use this library
to do XSLT transformations.

The verdict is still out on IE 6.0 support. Initial reports
here do not sound promising.

If you are asking about NS, you are probably trying to be
as cross-browser compatible as possible, which means you're
better off not doing client-side XSLT and just stick to doing
it on the server. Just send HTML to the browsers.
