    Indeed, learn XSLT. XUpdate is no longer under active
    development. There are a precious few implementations, most of
    which are attached to a database implementation. The
    specification was never completed, and the web site that once
    hosted the specification now has a domain squatter page on it.

    Learn about XSLT. There is an active an helpful communicty at a
    mailing list called xsl-list.
