Well, no, IE6 will not be using MSXML 4.0 as claimed below. It will use
the MSXML 3.0 that it ships with, or perhaps MSXML 2.6 or 2.0 if you
configure it that way (please don't)

MSXML 4.0 removed the version-independent CLSIDs and ProgIDs from MSXML,
so there is no concept of installing MSXML 4.0 in replace mode (as with
previous releases) and MSXML 4.0's XSLT process won't be used as the
default processor in Internet Explorer (at least until a version of IE
is released that is based on MSXML 4.0 without support for 3.0 - not
likely in the near future).

MSXML 3.0 supports both WD-xsl and XSLT 1.0, distinguished by the
namespace on the XSLT elements. MSXML 4.0 has no support for WD-xsl.
More details in my article on this topic:

I've made similar mistakes myself. It's all pretty confusing. Some would
say unnecessarily so.

Actually, IE6 will be using msxml4, but that won't change anything here,
don't think.
