The code at the bottom genereates an error in IE 5.5 at this line:
currentTitleAttr=allDivs[i].getAttributeNode("catTitle");
"Object doesn't support this property or method"
But it works fine in IE 6
The full function code
function expandEntity(elTitle) {
var allDivs=document.getElementsByTagName("DIV");
var i,currentTitleAttr,currentTitle;
      for (i=0; i <xsl:eval no-entities="t">"&lt;"</xsl:eval> allDivs.length; i++) {
            if (allDivs[i].hasChildNodes) {
                  currentTitleAttr=allDivs[i].getAttributeNode("catTitle");
                  if (currentTitleAttr) {
                        currentTitle=currentTitleAttr.value;
                        if (currentTitle) {
                              if (currentTitle==elTitle) {
                                    expand_WPQ_(allDivs[i]);
                              }//endif
                        }//endif
                  }//endif
            }//endif
      }//endfor
}//endfunction expandEntity

This bit:

<xsl:eval no-entities="t">"&lt;"</xsl:eval>

is from the old MSXML 2 parser, and does not conform to the current spec.  I think you're doing a couple things wrong, but mainly mixing API's.  Please post the entire XSL, if it's not too big. This probaby works in IE6, because MSXML 3 is the default parser in IE6, and it is backwards compatible with MSXML 2.  It probalby does not work in IE 5.5, because you're including something, somewhere, that's part of MSXML 3, but IE5.5 used MSXML 2 by default (it's possible to configure IE 5.5 to use MSXML 3, though)
