Using the XSLT Mapper - Getting Started

This section helps you get started using the XSLT Mapper to create stylesheets that aggregate data and transform XML. The sample files used in this section are in the Stylus Studio examples\simpleMappings directory. If you follow the procedures in this section, you create the BooksToCatalog.xsl stylesheet. A sample version of this stylesheet, sampleBooksToCatalog.xsl, is also in the examples\simpleMappings directory of your Stylus Studio installation directory.

Each of the topics in this section contains instructions for working with sample XML documents that you can use to familiarize yourself with the XSLT Mapper. You should perform the steps in each topic before you move on to the next topic - after the first topic, some steps depend on actions you performed in a previous topic.
