I have a series of XML files that follow a standard schema for filling in content on a web page.  I have an XSLT for Netscape/Mozilla, and XSLT for IE, and several other XSLT's in the works for other browsers.  I want to do a javascript that rewrites the body text of a page with the transform appropriate to the right browser, with a default to IE if the detect fails.

if(-1 != navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE"))
 // Internet Explorer
document.write('<LINK YOUR XSLT FILE HERE">');
else if (-1 != navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Mozilla"))
// Netscape document.write('<LINK YOUR XSLT FILE HERE');
 // other

see this example from w3schools

<body><script type="text/javascript">// Load XML
var xml = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xml.async = false

// Load XSL----------------------------------------------------------> here u can add different xslt's depending on the browser
var xsl = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xsl.async = false

// Transform
