Great book for learning XSLT. I recommend reading along and doing the work.

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.
