Overview

Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations, along with the XML Path Language, give you the power to transform XML documents into HTML documents, or to other XML documents that you can use in Web-based applications. But how do you implement XSLT in the real world? This book provides the answers. Covering everything from reformatting numbers to creating dynamic XSLT applications, XSLT expert Jeni Tennison delivers a wealth of ready-to-use utility templates and practical XSLT solutions — everything you need to jump-start XSLT development. With XSLT and XPath on the Edge, Unlimited Edition, you'll:

• Take advantage of utility templates for searching and replacing strings, calculating minimums, and more

• Build your own recursive templates or use simple XPaths

• Discover ready-made solutions for filtering, numbering, grouping, and other transformations

• Understand the building blocks of XSLT applications

• Separate style from format and break up your stylesheet into functional modules that are easier to maintain and reuse

• Build dynamic applications that use client-side processing with MSXML or server-side processing with Cocoon

• Fine-tune stylesheets to work more efficiently and deliver exactly the output you're looking for

• Harness the power of the XSLT extensions available with MSXML, Saxon, and Xalan
With this Unlimited Edition, owners of the book can download all-new content from the Web and access a searchable version of the book online.
