I wonder why someone that wants a WYSIWYG solution would care about
the underlying technologies? Perhaps Senthil can give requirements for
his application. I assume that what she/he is looking for is an online
publishing tool of some kind. Such tools may well use XSLT but not
actually generate it.

You might actually find a product that claimed to do that, and
perhaps some aspiring home mechanics are even buying it. But the
serious ones are soon moving on to screwdrivers and socket wrenches.
There are (or have occasionally been) various applications that do
offer help to beginners with the syntax, at least, of XSLT, by
writing templates for you based on mappings you create in one way or
another from source to target (in XML, with a GUI, by devising a
representative target document, etc.). But (a) I doubt if they're
web-based, and (b) in any case, none has (TMK) caught on for
professional use, which tells you something.
