XSLT, now an official W3 Recommendation, is the language for
transforming XML documents into other XML documents. From the point of
view of XSLT, document nodes include text, XML elements, element
attributes, comments, and a few other things. This makes it
particularly easy to hide or reveal either the text or the markup, or
the attributes in various combinations.
