(Newbie) XML to XSL?

Hello People,
I am not so comfortable with XML but I have come to point where I have been asked to present a solution for converting the XML files to XSL, later to be used for XML database repositories. Could any one please guide me on how to take an approach for achieving this objective.

"Converting XML to XSL," with no context, doesn't make any sense. XSL (I'm assuming we mean XSLT here, as is common) is XML, using a particular set of XML tags. Does your XML already represent formatting rules (which is what XSL represents?) If not, then it's more likely what you're being asked to do is to transform your XML to some other XML (or HTML) using XSL.

Why not try to give us some more details on exactly what's going on, and we can try to help.
