  • I bounced off of several XSLT books until a friend suggested "XSLT for Dummies", which actually does a credible job of explaining how the damn thing works.
    • I've looked at a few XSLT books around the office, but the one that worked best for me were the two reference chapters in XML in a Nutshell [oreilly.com]. They contain just enough information to find out what you actually need to know or perhaps guess what you're trying to do.

      • I second that. My few hacks using XSLT were done with XML in a Nutshell before me.

        But I think that if I had to use it in anger then I would take a course, or find a tutorial at some conference - for me that is the best way of grogging the mindset of a new area. That is to have someone in the know explain it. and then read the books to get to know it. YMMV.
