Yes, I downloaded it today, and it works fine on a creaking P75 with a
mere 16MB of RAM.  

I converted a 25K XML document containing museum catalogue records into
250K of HTML, which proceeded to 'break' (or at least freeze) the
browser when I asked it to expand all the markup.

(However, msxsl doesn't like '.' within element names!  Also, like other
parsers it still lets <?XML ...?> through in the XML declaration -
shouldn't we be forced to mend our ways?!)
