Are the languages themselves the only thing worth considering here?

Client-side Javascript is given access to features of the user-agent 
(and in some cases the operating system) that XSLT is not. This gives 
Javascript more power for good and ill in ways that XSLT cannot and 
makes analysis more difficult, though this is not a matter of the 
language (one can pass these objects to XSLT in at least one extended 
dialect, though not without using Javascript or another such language as 
glue).
