Xamarin.Forms with WebView and xslt Transformations (Visual Studio for Mac)

I am using latest Visual Studio and Xamarin.Forms 5.x and I am trying to port my Visual C++ MFC application over to Xamarin.Forms. I am hoping to create a MacOS / iOS version.

I stumbled over this rather old discussion about my question. But the link referred to no longer works. And Xamarin.Forms is changing fast.

In short, my existing application on Windows comes with a XSL template. The user can customise that template r write a new one to use. This XSLT template transforms the XML data to create a HTML file which is then displayed in a CHtmlView.

I was excited to learn that Xamarin.Forms has a WebView but I read that you need to load a html file into memory and it as a string to the view.

Is it still not possible to display HTML output with the WebView using XSLT transformations?
