Hmmmm. Are you asking if Python has support for XSLT out of the box? It
doesn't. Or are you asking if there are Python XSLT modules that "just
work"? There are.

What are your requirements (i.e. do you need extension functions, the
ability to install entity revolvers, transform to DOM, etc.)? What
platform are you using?
