I want to use XSL to determine if visitors are using IE/Win, Moz/Win, or IE/Mac, Moz/Mac - any ideas?

Thanks,

Matt

browser detection has everything to do with javascript and not XSLT. XSLT merely transforms XML documents. I don't understand what your question really is about, perhaps you could elaborate.

As b1xml2 said, you are confusing some web terms.

Re-Asking the question to :
How to determine what browser is being used by the user, take a look at this link :

Although I could give you the specific code for this matter, reading the whole column will give you a better understanding of what you are looking for.

just wanted to know if it was possible - I understand that it's possible with Javascript.  since I need to know on the server-side, I resorted to parsing the user-agent header and determining from that.

Thanks,

Matt
