XML is fast becoming the standard for structuring documents for the exchange of information via the web. However, for that information to be displayed on a Web Browser, the XML document still should be "transformed", most commonly either into an XSL document on the client side, or into an HTML document on the server side. This can be done through a general language such as C, C++, or Java. But XSLT is a lightweight language designed specifically for this purpose, and has many advantages. It has suffered from a lack of documentation, however. The W3C has just recently set the recommended specifications. This should be one of the first guides based on those specs.
