The docs at imply 
that modern browsers should work and that an older browser might not, 
and when Firefox didn't my first thought was that the XML was at fault, 
and not Firefox.

Is it possible to update this page to clarify that one should always 
rely on the reference transformation using Xalan+Xerces because 
concluding anything is broken? At the moment, emphasis is placed on 
Xalan+Xerces being used to prevent massive diffs only.
