XSLT Introduction

XSL (EXtensible Stylesheet Language) is a styling language for XML.

XSLT stands for XSL Transformations.

This tutorial will teach you how to use XSLT to transform XML documents into other formats (like transforming XML into HTML).

Online XSLT Editor

With our online editor, you can edit XML and XSLT code, and click on a button to view the result.

XSLT Example

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="/">
    <h2>My CD Collection</h2>
    <table border="1">
      <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">
      <xsl:for-each select="catalog/cd">
          <td><xsl:value-of select="title"/></td>
          <td><xsl:value-of select="artist"/></td>
