Overview

If you have a basic knowledge of markup and want to learn how to harness the power of XML using the XML transformation language, "XSLT," then let this book be your guide! To enhance your reading, we also encourage you to visit UnderstandingXSLT.com.

For the well-established XML to be useful when delivering documents and data on the Web, XML needs to be processed. And XSLT is an ideal processor, providing power to convert XML data for presentational purposes and to modify data structure.

In this updated version of Tennison's original, acclaimed Beginning XSLT, you'll learn the basics of how to create HTML from XML using XSLT. You'll move on to organizing stylesheets with templates, and start exploring XPath languageimportant for selecting pieces of data and performing calculations and string manipulations. Finally, you'll tackle some advanced topics like building dynamic XSLT applications, creating SVG with XSLT, and validating XML with Schematron.

    excellent 'beginning' book

    This is the finest example of a 'Beginner's Level' book that I've ever come across. This is not your typical 'Hello World' pablum, but one that ramps up the learning curve quite quickly. It's solid enough to function as a reference book also. I bought this book because I felt I needed some XSL transformations to solve a problem in a web app that I'm creating for a client. I had some tricky things I wanted the transformations to accomplish, and by Chapter 5 Ms. Tennison had covered most of the topics I needed to get my solutions off the ground. If you need to learn XSLT to extend your XML documents, this is a perfect place to start.
