Where do I use XSLT?

I know of only 2 apps:

1.When converting an XML file from one representation to the other.
System-1 generates XMl in one format wheareas System-2 expects it in a different format.

2.To generate content (HTML, WML etc) by applying xsl over xml.
So you have diff stylesheets and depending upon the client, you generate different views.

I agree with that answer. XSLT is just a way to transform and display xml without parsing through the xml and converting it to some other presentation format. XSL/XSLT is recognized by the browser and is therefore rendered on the fly, requiring no compilation, and thus no processing code to transform the xml into some other format.
