XSLT can be used in following ways:

Client: e.g. built-in browsers e.g MSXML

Standalone(run from CMD): By using SAXON or XALAN

WEB Server(Servlet/jsp): TRAX(Part of JAXP) or Apache XML Project's Cocoon

XSLt is used for transforming(converting) XMl files into other XMl files, or HTML files or to text files.

Depending upon the recieving application, the output will differ. If the application is a web browser, you might most probably convert XML using XSLT to HTML.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
