Well, you have a choice, you can either do the transformations on the
server and send html to the client, in which case you don't need any
stylesheet PI at all, and you just need to generate <a href links to the
.html files that you have generated, rather than to .xml sources.

Or, you send xml to the client and have the client transform to html,
in which case you need to tell the client which stylesheet to use, and
currently (unfortunately) the only portable way of doing that is with
a xml-stylesheet PI.
