  DISCLAIMER: You should contact Microsoft for information about thier
tools, I can not speak for them or for thier product's capabilities nor plans.

  To my knowledge, Microsoft does not yet support the XSL formatting
objects (and this portion of the XSL family of specifications is not yet a
recommendation). The only way I know to display in IE5 is to use XSLT to
map your XML document into HTML+CSS. Be advised that IE5 does not support
the current XSLT Recommendation, but supports a working draft that is over
1 year old. There have been significant changes in XSLT since that draft.
See the Microsoft web site for information regarding pending upgrades.

For suggetions on information on how to use XSL, the most useful places I
can point you are the W3C's 'www.w3.org/Style/XSL/' page and the archives
of the 'xsl-list' at 'www.mulberrytech.com'.
  I do not have time to assist you in writing your application, but the
'xsl-list' is a public discussion forum on XSL. It includes a number of
members who are publishing user's guides and how-to books on XSL (and all
its components). I suggest you follow the instructions on
'www.mulberrytech.com' to add yourself to this discussion forum, then post
your questions there. (Many questions are posted with the opening "I am new
to using XSL...", and all are answered courteously.)

This e-mail reflects the opinion of the Editor of the XSL (formatting
   objects) Specification. This is my interpretation of the
   current (majority) opinion of the portion of the XSL-WG that
   is working on formatting objects. It may not reflect the opinions
   of all members of the XSL-WG or even of all members of the portion
   of the WG that is working on the formatting objects. It is subject
   to change.
