One issue of using XML, XSL is the need of a suitable tool to edit your information. Beeing not a millionair, I was looking for 'free' tools:
Two suggestions:
1) find a Merlot at http://www.merlotxml.org/ is a free <b>visual</b> tool for editing XML documents, (you need to the appropriate DDT). Advantage: it is JAVA based so you will probably 'love' it.
2) (X)Emacs has a mode for SGML XML with a number of useful (emacs) tools, such as hiding parts of the tree, going to next node etc.

www.ultraedit.com - Suppports XML formats.
www.xmlspy.com - very famous XML editing tool, not a freeware but you can download an evaluation copy.
For beginners, I suggest using Windows notepad!!

Jane, you are right, I even have it up and running either at home or at work (at one place there were difficulties, but not important at this moment).
