How come those 2000 machines were running IE5 and not netscape 1?
If the machines in an organisation all have IE5 then it means that
they, or their operating system, or their browser, get upgraded
reasonably often anyway, so before long they'll have an XSLT  aware
browser  whether they like it or not, and as Chris said for some
situations upgrading IE5 can be automatic (in some situations security
considerations or network non-access prevent that) so basically I think
it is reasonable to assume that the majority of clients will be xslt
enabled "soon" where you just have to define "soon" appropriately.
If you've been waiting 2000 years to get mathematics rendering in your
web browser then arguing whether this will happen in days or months or
years is really just small change, the good news is that it will happen.
