I was looking for something quick and easy to convert XML files into HTML or PDF. The resources I found all looked a little dated. I have an XSLT and XSD to work from.

JasperReports and Cocoon looked like overkill. FOP primarily outputs into PDF and may work for me, but I would like the flexibility to output HTML.

If you have a preferred conversion API, I'd love to hear about it.

I use XSLT to convert XML to HTML. And if I had the requirement to convert XML to PDF, I might consider XSL-FO. I wouldn't especially insist on one product which could do both.
