Hello, I'm new to XML and these XML related technologies and I'm trying to
understand their benefits and uses.  I understand now what XML is all about
but I'm still not sure what the purpose is of using XSLT.  I know of course
that its used to transform documents, but I don't understand why it is
necessary when we have templating systems and technologies like ASP to
dynamically determine the markup that goes out to a browser.  Are there
advantages to using XSLT over other technologies that I am missing? What is
unique about it? How are other people using it and why?  Any insight about
this would be great!
