XSLT is the part of XSL, actually XSL contains Two parts, One is XSLT and Formating Object called XSl:fo.
try to find for this Book "XML Bible", it is very good book it contains all the details.

XSL is the standard stylesheets used for converting xml documents and displaying them. It has two distinct parts - the transformation part(XSLT) and the formatting part. Both these parts can work independent of each other. The transformation language can convert an xml document to a well formed HTML, another XML or an SGML and ignore the formatting part.And even the formatting part works on documents written with software other than in XSLT. So in essence XSL consists of two languages. Since XSLT can convert documnets to standard HTML format that can be displayed by web browsers they are very much in use - unlike the formatting object part. XSLT has superior content management capabilities and is largely used to format XML documents for the web
I agree. Here's the link:
