I don't know what capabilities you/they have on the web server, but is
this a possible scenario:

1. Edit local XML and do local transform to check it is correct.

2. Check local XML into Subversion repository on server.

3. Subversion check-in hook script on server checks out updated file(s)
   and runs transform using its copy of the stylesheets.

4. New HTML appears on server.

More work for you to set up, but they could do then the whole thing
without leaving their XML IDE (e.g., oXygen).
