XMetaL has a version of James Clark's XT wrapped in a DLL that can be used. In
version 2 of this product you have to find it in the support directory to
install it where previous versions it was a little more noticable to install

Yes their default is to use MS, but this approach shows a method for 
incorporating any XSLT processor that you wanted to use:
	1) Wrap the parser in a DLL if it doesn't have one.
	2) Write the macro script that links the parser into the XMetaL
