<quote from="http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/";>

XSL is a family of recommendations for defining XML document
transformation and presentation. It consists of three parts:

      * XSL Transformations (XSLT) a language for transforming XML
      * the XML Path Language (XPath) an expression language used by
        XSLT to access or refer to parts of an XML document. (XPath is
        also used by the XML Linking specification)
      * XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO) an XML vocabulary for specifying
        formatting semantics


In other words, a typical way to create an XSL-FO document is to
generate this document with a XSLT transformation and XPath is the
language that you'll be using in this XSLT transformation to access the
source document that needs to be converted.

Hope this helps.
