Sample text

However, you can always tackle these problems by invoking procedures written in other languages, such as Java or Javascript, from within the stylesheet. XSLT is also useful for converting XML data into any text-based format, such as comma-separated values, or various EDI message formats. Text output is really just like XML output without the tags, so this creates no particular problems for the language. XML ANYTHING Perhaps more surprising is that XSLT can often be useful to convert from non-XML formats into XML or something else: ANYTHING XML In this case you'll need to write some kind of parser that understands the input format; but you would have had to do that anyway.

Pre-history HTML was originally conceived by Berners-Lee as a set of tags to mark the logical structure of a document: headings, paragraphs, links, quotes, code sections, and the like. Soon people wanted more control over how the document looked: they wanted to achieve the same control over the appearance of the delivered publication as they had with printing and paper. So HTML acquired more and more tags and attributes to control presentation: fonts, margins, tables, colors, and all the rest that followed.

This minimizes the work that needs to be done at display time, and is ideal when the same displayed page is presented to very many users. There isn't one right answer, and often a combination of techniques may be appropriate. Conversion in the browser is an attractive option once XSLT becomes widely available within browsers, but that is still some way off. Even when this is done, there may still be a need for some serverside processing to deliver the XML in manageable chunks, and to protect secure information.
