XML is established as the universal standard for delivering documents and data on the Web. The next step is to process that data and the XSL Transformation language, XSLT, has been developed as the primary means for such processing. XSLT can be used to couvert XML data for presentational purposes as well as to modify data structure. Who is this book for ? This book introduces those with a little knowledge of markup languages (HTML, XML, etc.) to the exciting world of XSLT. No prior programming knowledge is assumed or needed. This is a Wrox Beginning... series book, so we will aim to teach you everything you need to know from scratch. This book will be equally beneficial to designers and programmers alike. What this book will teach you : This book is divided into two parts. The first part introduces XML and XSLT bit by bit, gradually demonstrating the techniques that you need to generate HTML (and other formats) from XML. The second part pulls the theory together by looking at some of the other things that you can do with XSLT, including generating graphics.
