    4. Transformation process – explicit vs. implicit transformation
    5. Tree Models – how does the processor apply the XSL tree to the XML tree to produce a result tree
    6. XSLT Syntax – the fundamentals for applying XSLT to an XML document
    7. Using XSLT Elements
    8. Xpath – expressions, pattern matching, functions
    9. Variables, Expressions, Data Types – manipulating the XML to get desired results
    10. XML to HTML transformations
    11. XML to XML transformations
    12. XML to Text transformations

When the student leaves the course... the developer/student will be knowledgeable in creating well-formed XML documents. The student will be an expert in validating XML to ensure the data undergoes proper processing. The attending student will know which technology to use to prevent unnecessary and costly processing of data by understanding when to use DOM and SAX. The student will be skilled with the proper techniques for transforming XML documents to HTML, XML or Text to ensure that the data is in the correct format for efficient processing or display. The technology mastered in this course will be completely cross platform and implemental in any system.
