Correct guess.
My xslt-sheet looks like this:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version = "1.0" >
<xsl:output method="text" indent="yes" />
<xsl:template match = "/icestats" >
<xsl:for-each select="source">
<xsl:if test="@mount='/test.ogg'">
<xsl:value-of select="artist" /> - <xsl:value-of select="title" />
</xsl:if>
</xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

This (text/plain) page containing only one line of text is then read by an flash-applet & included by a php-page.

You could of course place an frame/i-frame in your index.html to have the users browser make the "lookup". Then you need to make the output method "html" and make some nice formatting that suits your needs.

Regards

Thomas
