How to convert XML to HTML using XSLT

Converting xml to html using xsl can be done in many ways. One of the simplest ways is to embed the style sheet information in the xml file itself.


_______________________________________________

After embedding the style sheet information in the xml and if you try to view the xml file, then it is displayed according to the information provided in the xsl style sheet.

You should know that an xml file includes the data that is to be displayed and the xsl style sheet has information on how that data is to be displayed. The sample code to be included at the top of an xml file is:

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="ur_xsl_file.xslt"?>

If you embed this code in the xml file, then that particular xml file will be transformed according to the formatting information provided in 'ur_xsl_file.xslt'.

There are namespaces available in technologies like ASP.Net which helps you to load the xml and the xsl file dynamically through code and then use a method to transform that xml file to html using the xsl loaded. These techniques are available in other technologies too. You can make use of these in your applications to do the transformation.
