XSLT Introduction - Intermediate

Course Information

Overview

XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transforms) enables you to transform XML data from one document type into other XML document types, and even into other formats such as HTML, XHTML, WML, and XQL.

XSLT Introduction/Intermediate training course teaches attendees everything they need to begin using XSLT in their XML projects.

XSLT is a pseudo-programming language or scripting language used to output text which has been marked up as XML for display in a web browser or other device. It is the engine which brings the interoperability of XML to life in an online environment, and can either output XML statically or dynamically.

Prerequisites

Completion of XML Introduction/Intermediate training course or equivalent is required.

Testimonials

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this course but do feel that the duration should be extended in order to allow more time to cover all of the topics. Noel was a fantastic trainer, happy to answer any questions and very good at explaining how to do something, thank you.
