Just XSL is an easy, hands-on tutorial on three related XSL technologies: XPath, XSLT, and XSL-FO. Best-selling Just XML author John E. Simpson introduces all three through a single, easy-to-follow sample application that demonstrates exactly how they work together in the real world. Breezy and informal, Just XSL is perfect for both developers and content specialists.
