No, it is a Microsoft Windows program - see:

There are lots of ways, but depending on how the
real DTD looks (maybe there are many projects per
input XML tree?), this is one approach:

<xsl>
<rule>
   <root/>
     <HTML>
     <children/>
    </HTML>
</rule>

<rule>
    <target-element type="project"/>

    <HEAD><TITLE>
    <eval>children.item("projecttitle",0).text</eval>
    </TITLE></HEAD>
    <BODY>

    <children/>
    </BODY>
</rule>

<rule>
    <target-element type="projecttitle"/>

    <H1>
    <children/>
    </H1>
</rule>
</xsl>
