Create XSLT from DTD's, a newie question

Hello, fellow rancher,

I am new at XSLT. I need to transform some XML files into a different format. I have both the source DTD and the target DTD. I understand that using an XSLT will do the trick. I would like to know what the right approach is in terms of creating this XSLT? Should I simply study the DTD's and crank out this XSLT? Or are there any tools available that can help? I just want to learn about my options and avoid doing it the hard way.

Try the XSLT examples. They go from basic and increase in complexity.
Good luck.
