After downloading and installing Netscape 6.0 (a long, counter-intuitive
ordeal)
and playing with xml files, I went to the Netscape 6.0 homepage and finally
found
in its documentation the following info.:

"With the industry's best support for CSS, XML data can be natively
formatted for both display and printing, across platforms and devices,
using Cascading Style Sheets. There's never a need to do a one-way
transformation to HTML and lose structure and data."
Source: http://developer.netscape.com/tech/xml/

I couldn't find any reference to XSL in Netscape documentation.
