recently i were asked in my company to find a best program on market which will allow to generate an xslt file using drop and drag method from XML file. My company want to recommended this software to our customer for generating style shits template for viewing rapports.
our requirements are:

1.Have to be stand alone application
2.Automatically parse XML and show it in tree view of the XML doc.
3.Allow drop and drag graphical objects like tables and boxes.
4.Allow drop and drag XML element from tree view into tables and boxes.
5.Allow Styling Manipulate like CSS.
6.WYSIWIG display
7.Generate XSLT document which can be associated with XML document inputted in step 1 and will generate exactly output like in step 5.
8.Allow using XPATH functions, XSTL functions and XQuery functions.
9.Have to be simple enough that not experience person in xml and xslt will be able to use it.

Stylus studio is the closest to my requirements (partially fail on 8).

I have some problems with function generated by stylus. Some files generated by stylus studio aren't working in browser.

In one of your tutorials i have found a way of changing background color of HTML element
in 4:30

when im using this method it working fine in stylus but in browsers it doesn't work
im getting an error like
Expected token '}' found 'NAME'. {if(contains(Status,"Fail")) -->then <--"red" else

i have filling that i should somewhat instal saxon into my browser but i don't know how

But even if i will do it that xslt document could be operated by third party and than asking for installing some extra software in to browser will be unpractical

So my question is
Is there any other (simple) way that will allow achieve that same result like in this tutorial movie?

If you need to run your transformations in the browser, you are restricted to use XSLT 1.0.

Make sure to select XSLT 1.0 when you are generating code in XML Publisher.

Assuming that you are targeting Internet Explorer, once you have the transformation generated in the XSLT editor switch XSLT processor to MSXML which is the same processor the browser is running.

Does it help?
