Performing XSL transformations on the client

You can perform XSL transformations on the client without the use of an application server. When you do so, a browser does the work of transforming the XML data, instead of an application server. You can use Dreamweaver to create such a page, however, client-side transformations require manipulation of the XML file containing the data you want to display. Additionally, client-side transformations will only work in modern browsers.
