I did my first TeamCity configuration just this morning, which is why it
was on my mind.

You would set up something like it such that whenever the stylesheets
changed, the build tool checks out the latest version, builds whatever
needs building, then runs the tests associated with the code.

That sort of thing works best when the build tool and testing framework
are well-known enough that the continuous integration tool has hooks to
work well with them and be smart about using their output.  Your
favourite, Ant, and JUnit are possibly the best known and most widely
supported, but there are other options.

And there are XSLT testing frameworks that work with JUnit.  Juxy [3] is
one, which is how I got onto TeamCity, since Juxy is included in the
TeamCity demo site and I had Juxy ownership thrust upon me after I
submitted an XML format for Juxy tests.
