I'm not so sure about how on topic this is. 

If you want to launch Excel from a browser the
general approach is to use a browser specific preferences
setting to make the association. You may also need to 
configure the mime types in your server, (if that is 
possible in your situation) or go through an 
intermediate CGI script which will send a mime type
to trigger the launch of Excel.

In any case it isn't really an XSL question, unless
you intend to transform your XML into comma-separated-file
using an XSLT transformation.
