Well, client-sided XSLT may widely supported, and, in fact, it may even
be just my konqueror that doesn't do it due to some misconfiguration (I
don't care enough to try and find out for sure).
Nevertheless, if done on the server side, there is no need to spend a
single thought about how good or bad pontential clients might support
XSLT. They simply have to render the result - which alone can give one
enough to think about if it shall look identical on different browsers.
That's why IMO XSLT belongs in most cases to the server side.
Of course, everyone has to decide for himself and consider his own
