We use XSLT to implement an interpreter for a sim ple XML based imperative programming language called "XIM." Our work shows that not only is it theoretically possible to use XSLT as a programming language proces sor, but also that this is practically feasible. This has poten tial application in the area of delivering executable content over the Internet.
