Barryp's description is good. One feature to add is the incredible power of XSLT's document() function. This enables you to pull in anything that can be referred to by a URI (or set of URI's), from simple XML documents to the results of CGI queries and other things.

So, not only does XSLT give you total control over client-side subsetting and restructuring, but it also enables augmentation of the contents of the page, or dynamic client-side page generation, integrated with flexible document addressing (XPath) and transformation.
