Microsoft's XSL ISAPI filter for IIS-based systems allows us to separate content from presentation. The server transforms the XML document with the appropriate stylesheet, which is selected depending on the device requesting the document -- you just need to create individual XSL stylesheets for the device types that you want to support.
Products such as the XSL ISAPI filter are becoming one of the simplest ways to support a large number of devices that each need content based on XML/XSL. The only negative thing about using the XSL ISAPI filter is that you must create at least three files (the .pasp file, the configuration file and the XSL file) for each of the pages that you want to provide access to.
