Hi all
Please provide me a solution to translate an XFDL form to a HTML format.

I think you should say transform than translate.

Since XFDL is XML, the easiest way would be to do a XSLT (XSL Transformations)

Current w3c XSLT recommnedation is XSLT 2.0 and as far as I know only the Saxon 8 processor supports XSLT 2.0 (with XPATH 2.0) (The Schema aware version of Saxon is not free however). However there should be a number of XSLT processors supporting ver 1.0.

Do a bit of googling and there should be plenty of resources for ver 1.0 and perhaps 2.0 as well.
I agree. Here's the link:
