Hello friends,
I am a begginer in this field. Can anyone tell me what do we mean by xslt. What can be done thru xstl. Do we have to install in order to run xslt. And how is it related to xml. I would like to know about the details of the xslt. If anyone can put some light on this. Thanks in advance

XSLT is a part of XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language). It consists of 3 parts:
XSLT (XSLT) - a language for transforming XML documents
XPATH (XML Path Language) - an expression language used by XSLT to access or refer to parts of an XML document
XSL-FO (XSL Formatting Objects) - an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics in an XML document
XSLT is the most important of the three parts in the XSL standard. With it, we can transform an XML document into another XML document, or another type of document, like an xhtml file, etc.
To transform your xml documents on the client side, you'll need IE 5.5 or better. Netscape 6.2 does as well.
On the server side, you can do it with java. JDK 1.4 has java api's as a part of the kit, so you don't need to download anything extra.
