Hi
Some of the reports we obtain from our systems are output in XML format.  I tried hand coding in gedit (like notepad) and found it really difficult, to do things with some simple stuff based on what I have Googled.

Can someone tell me of a few free or open source tools that they can recommended to create the XSLT files so that I can make nice reports from these raw XML files?  Are there ones that let you work with the XML data file itself then model the report layout you would like?

I don't need anything fancy, as these reports are for in house use only and the reports are only needed infrequently, so the easier to use the better.

Would like to run these on linux if possible.
If such free tools aren't available, I'll consider buying a low end one, so please recommend one of these.  In fact if the purchased one is worth it, I'll probably buy it anyway.

If my question is too hard, maybe I just need a good simple to use reference book for basic to intermediate level.

Thanks
