I took a look at it but it seems that (for now) khtml & opera do not 
support xsl transformation, no matter what I put in the headers.
I primarily test it with gecko based browsers ( firefox & mozilla) and 
IE, both work. I could built in legacy support but I am not going to do 
that, those lazy browser-bastards should do the transformation :-).
I'm only partial kidding, my primary focus for this test is to use the 
technique in the network I administrate so I can be bold and say that I 
only support xsl compliant browsers.
And to be honest as long as the technique I use are w3c recommend and 
Firefox renders the page adequate, I'm not going to put in more effort, 
xsl for crying out loud is a standard since November 1999 that is almost 
_6_ years ago.
However it works on the browser with the biggest market share and on a 
cross-platform browser, that's not too bad.

Thanks again for taking the effort to look at it and reply! I really do 
appreciate it allot!
