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.

Hi,

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.

Regards,
Dave
