Unless I am misunderstanding then the message I'm replying to was a bit misleading - this actually only means that Firebug can't be used on pages that were generated with an XSLT transform. (Which is about, oh, 0.000000003% of the web - and probably isn't a critical problem as you could run the XSLT server-side instead and work on a stored version of the page.)

Obviously it would still be better if it could work on these pages, but basically there is no need for most Firebug users to worry about this issue.
