Some of these technologies are SOAP , WSDL , UDDI , XML Schema , document object model (DOM) Application Program Interface (API) , Extensible Style sheet Language (XSL) , XSL Transformations
(XSLT) , XML Path language (XPath)  and many more.
Some chapters, like Maureen E Walsh's "Metadata Repurposing Using XSLT" are nearly incomprehensible to the technological novice, as when she defines the transformation language XLST by explaining, "The XSL family is made up of XSL Transformations
(XSLT), XML Path Language (XPath) and XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO)" (p.
Confident as any precocious 10-year-old, XML replied: "First, I've inspired more than 38 core recommendations, everything from Canonical XML 1.1 to XQuery to XSL Transformations
(XSLT), and many others.
(XSLT) Version 1.0, W3C Recommendation, 1999.
The book moves from an introduction to the XML document structure through progressively more complex aspects of XML--such as DTDs, namespaces, and schemas--to related concepts--such as XSL transformations
 W3C Recommendation 16-Nov-99, XSL Transformations
(XSLT) Version 1.0, http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt.
Finally, on November 16, the consortium released two specifications, XSL Transformations
(XSLT) and XML Path Language (XPath), as recommendations.
This purpose has been reached through the design of a set of XSL transformations
that allow generating Cocoon forms.
A simple XML Author tool that enforces the structural and styling constraints of XML schemas and XSL transformations
can do this without revealing complex behind-the-scenes machinery.
XSLT: Working with XML and HTML provides one answer by furnishing in-depth information about transforming XML documents to HTML using XSLT (XSL Transformations
XML developers like its project-oriented approach for developing XML models, XSL transformations
to HTML, and validation of XML content.
The first area is XSLT (XSL Transformation
), which deals with applying a set of stylesheet transformation rules to the data and transforming the data into another document.
