Usage scenarios

XSL transformations can be used to transform XML documents from one markup-language to another.


(ArticleML is the class of XML documents defined by article.dsd in the section on DSD.)

XSL Formatting Objects is the "second half" of XSL. It is an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting in a more low-level and detailed way than possible with HTML+CSS.

XSL can be introduced gently to the Web world, since it both can translate into HTML (which every browser understands), and XSL F.O. (which future browers will understand).
