Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Version 1.0

This specification defines the features and syntax for the Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL), a language for expressing stylesheets. It consists of two parts: 1) a language for transforming XML documents, and 2) an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics. An XSL stylesheet specifies the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary. A stylesheet is needed to produce the presentation of the XML source content that is intended by the designer of that stylesheet for presentation on a display, on paper, in speech, or onto other media (e.g., hand-helds).
