using MSXML3 (DOM) within JSP

I need help integrating MSXML3 within a JSP page in a web format.
I have an XSL file as such:
<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:template match="/">
.hdr {font-family:Verdana;font-size:9pt;border-bottom:1px black solid;font-weight:bold;}
.normal {font-family:Verdana;font-size:8pt;border-bottom:1px silver solid;}
<xsl:for-each select="//books/book">
<TD CLASS="normal"><xsl:value-of select="title" /></TD>
<TD CLASS="normal"><xsl:value-of select="quantity" /></TD>
<TD CLASS="normal"><xsl:value-of select="price" /></TD>


Assume the XML is good XML that conforms to what the XSL is looking for.
I want to dynamically pass an XML string from one JSP page(JSP1) to another (JSP2) that will:
1. get the xml string from the querystring
2. load the XSL page above
3. send these 2 sources to a parser (preferably DOM/MSXML3)
4. display HTML
What is the syntax of my JSP 2 that will perform the following 4 points above?

Here is the answer. I've noticed that this board is very slow to help....(I'll keep this in mind in the future) Looks like a lot of people just want answers and don't contribute!!!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.

It's not a secret anymore!
