Performing XSL transformations on the server

Performing XSL transformations on the server

You can use Dreamweaver to create entire XSLT pages or XSLT fragments for use in dynamic web pages. An entire XSLT page is a page that, when transformed, generates a full HTML page. An XSLT fragment is a piece of code, used by a separate document, that, when transformed, displays XML data.
