Re: Newbie - advice asked


You'll get possibly lots of different flavours of answer, and no one answer
is "right".

What I'll contribute, is for somebody getting their toes wet with XML/XSL
using ASP and the MS parser is very quick and easy, and there are plenty of
examples on MSDN of doing just this.
