Automatic XSL generator?

Does anyone know of an application that will create an XSL stylesheet to convert from one DTD to another DTD?
On IBM Alphaworks site there is a program called XML IDE and it works with simple DTD's. If I try complicated DTD's the XSL stylesheet has broken tags and flawed XSL syntax.
Has anyone seen an application other than the one mentioned that can do this?

I found the answer to my own question. The product I discovered is called XSLerator and can be found on the IBM AlpaWorks site.
It is a java tool that allows you to create an XSL document based on an input and resultant XML document. The implementation is very good. I have tested the auto-generated XSL sheet in my Java application and it worked flawlessly.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
