Yes, Saxon's a great choice -- we use it -- though I wouldn't call it
"on the fly" transformations since it produces actual HTML files.  

For true "on-the-fly" transformations your best bet might be something
you already have: your web browser.  Internet Explorer and  Firefox can
both perform XML to HTML transformations.  Be sure that your file has
the xsl style sheet called out properly at the top and just open it in
IE or Firefox.

You could try Saxon: 
There is a free version. There is also a commercial version that
supports XML schemas.
