A new document on Apple’s Web site aims to help Internet developers understand how to perform
XML transformations with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which define how different elements in a Web page appear, and the Document Object Model (DOM), which specifies how objects in a Web page are represented.
Noting that new-generation Web browsers like Mozilla offer powerful Extensible Markup Language (XML) capabilities, Apple documents how XML can be rendered in such browsers using CSS and manipulated with the DOM. “This is a real boon to those of us eager to experiment with XML transformations (both visual and structural) without having to delve into unfamiliar technologies such as XPath, the verbose traversal language of XSLT,” explained the author.
The documentation presumes the reader has a basic understanding of how DOM, CSS and XML works.
