Battling with XSL Templates

Does anyone know of a good resource for example XSL templates or code snippets. I'm trying to get a Servlet/JSP/XML/XSL based web site into decent shape, and having a real fight getting XSL to do what I want. The power is awesome, but tricky with it.
I haven't found any significant XSL examples on the web yet, so I may even be approaching it from the wrong direction. The very dry specification documents, all I have seen so far, give little idea of how XSL is really supposed to be used.
Any suggestions?

Frank,
You might have found a few resources by now, but just thought that you should know about this net resource. Just follow this link http://metalab.unc.edu/xml/books/bible/updates/14.html. Hope this helps.
Also, could you provide me with a list of resources on XSLT/XPath if you are aware of any?

Thanks for the suggestions. Eventually I gave in and bought the book "XSLT Programmers Reference" from Wrox Press (ISBN 1861003129). It has really helped my understanding, and I recommend it despite its size (750 pages plus)
