A lot of work was done on the IE5 browser to make it a good server-side
solution so that it scales well with low contention in memory management
and locking, etc, etc.

I've seen numbers as high as 400 XSL transforms per second - which
includes loading the XML data and using a cached XSL stylesheet.

Exact numbers throughput obviously depend a lot on the type of XML data
and whether or not you are doing XSL transforms with or without script
code, etc, etc.

But one thing that has been confirmed is that MSXML scales very well with
the hardware that you give it.
