Re: xslt on server-side vs. client-side
> ever had to manage the support costs associated with upgrading 2000 > copies of IE 5 to use MSXML 3?) 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.
