Sounds like your server is not serving your documents with the right
MIME type.  Be sure it is serving both your .xml and .xsl stylesheets
as text/xml or Netscape 7/Mozilla will screw up.  They are fanatically
standards-compliant down to the last detail, and have a tendency to
punish you silently if you make any mistakes.
