I don't like making assumptions about end users. Not only may it not work on

Processing the XML post-test using xsltproc has the advantage that there is
only a requirement on the machine producing the test results, rather than
every client viewing it.

the context of a discussion. You seem to have broken the thread with
one of your mails, which is what caused the problem.
