It might be to do with whether MSXML3 has been installed in 'replace
mode' or not. If MSXML3 is installed in replace mode then it's the
version used automatically by IE5, otherwise it uses MSXML2. I think
that you can get around this by using Javascript to hand-code the
transformation and specifically creating "MSXML2.DOMDocument" DOMs
rather than "Microsoft.XMLDOM" or "MSXML.DOMDocument" DOMs for the
source and stylesheet documents.
