A brief summary of the current state of affairs is that is you can pick
an extension for you files so that they are served with MIME type
application/xhtml+xml or text/xml, then instances of IE with MathPlayer
installed will be able to detect incoming documents with MathML and
display them.  However, instances of IE without MathPlayer will
generally either display the parse tree or prompt to save as a file,
depending on the MIME type and IE configuration.  

In order to deal with instances of IE without MathPlayer, I think you
still have to use XSL, or some other server-side technology.
