The easiest way for me to figure out how to do something is to find an example for a similar thing. Does anyone know of web sites with good examples?

We learn by doing, there is no other way.

I like this xslt site. It lets you choose an XSLT element/function/axes/operator. You see a description and a cross references to examples that use it.

There is an online copy of Processing XML with Java by Elliotte Rusty Harold, that has a lot of examples.

The rare cases I've worked with xslt, this was a very helpfull site.
But I hav a doubt: Does it contain xslt-2.0 specification?
Doesn't seem to update very often, last time.

I don't think it does. But I use it for the core parts of XSLT which don't change.
I agree. Here's the link:
