Struts - MVC Model 2X?

I've heard about MVC Model 2X - making use of XML and XSLT. Would this be the preferred standard to handle the View rather than JSP - it makes sense i.e. that it can render well-formed documents.
In general, I started an application in Struts, but I'm not sure if Struts is the ultimate answer- in other words, why should one invest in Struts beyond reasonable doubt? Is it truly a succesfull framework, or is there other ones that are better options?

Here is a list of companies that have used Struts successfully. As to using XML/XSLT for the presentation layer, I have not tried it myself, but I have heard good thing about going that route.

I think I'll give it a bit of a test and complete my application with it in order to learn a bit more!
