Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video What is XSLT?, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] XSLT is another one of the complimentary…XML technologies that you can use to work with XML data…that I mentioned at the beginning of the course.…It builds on XPath, so if you haven't yet watched…the chapter on XPath, I suggest you watch that first,…before this chapter.…XSLT is the eXtensible Stylesheet…Language Transformation specification.…It's a little bit different than CSS.…You might see that word stylesheet…and think that XSLT is similar to CSS,…but the important word you need…to focus on is transformations.…
CSS essentially applies a set of styling rules…to content in either HTML or XML files.…XSLT works by applying templates to XML data.…XSLT is also written in XML syntax itself,…so when you look at an XSLT stylesheet,…it's written using XML code,…whereas CSS is written using its own unique format.…XSLT is pretty powerful.…It can transform XML data into almost anything else,…such as another form of XML or PDF or Word files or HTML,…it can be almost anything,…so we'll take a look at how we can transform…
