Tip: Twisting XML with XSLT 2.0
The XML story has two sides: data creators and data consumers. XSL typically falls on the consumer side of the equation, and all too often the format of the data is fixed well before a template gets to it. Take a list of books, for example. You might have an XML file with a list sorted by title, but what if you want the list to be sorted by author, or you just want to display the distinct author names? Can XSL do that?

Tip: Create multiple files in XSLT 2.0
For any reasonably complex data set, you need multiple views to navigate it. Take a QA test system, for example: With a pool of tests and test results, you need to see the data by date, by test category, by individual test, and so on. Each view would be in its own HTML file. So, can you have a single template in XSLT 2.0 build multiple HTML files from the one input data set?
