We've yet to see anything like XSL-FO in HTML browsers, but there are
some XSL-FO viewers that you can use like browsers:

 - Antenna House Formatter (http://www.antennahouse.com/)
 - XSmiles (http://www.xsmiles.org/)

They can both get hold of XML source over the web, automatically
transform to XSL-FO and display the results. XSmiles also makes an
attempt to view HTML (though it doesn't manage CSS, unfortunately) and
is worth looking at for the SMIL and XForms implementations.
