We've built a hybrid of a Java application which uses XSLT to do the presentation. 

The Java to:-
 - enforce and apply business logic
 - create the XML data
 - cache XSLT fragments, then combine them together
 - a wrapper for the transformation

The XSLT to:-
 - decrease time required to change look and feel
 - present the same data as HTML, CSV (text) and PDF (XSL-FO)
 - create new content quickly and easily
