XSLT is kind of cool, but my favorite tool for converting anything to/from
XML has always been OmniMark. I'm surprised alot more people don't talk
about using it on this list. It's great for transforming any type of text,
especially XML, and its relatively easy (easier than XSLT) to get started
with. It can even be used on the server-side to easily and quickly query a
database and dish out html, or simply translate an XML file into html.

Look into XSLT, the subset of XSL for specifying transformations of XML
