XSL stands for EXtensible Stylesheet Language, and is a style sheet language for XML documents.

XSLT stands for XSL Transformations and is used to transform XML.

I know what XSLT does, it will transform the datat from one XML format to another, based upon the XSD's

What does a XSL Sytle sheet do ?

XML does not use predefined tags (we can use any tag-names we like), and therefore the meaning of each tag is not well understood.

A <table> tag could mean an HTML table, a piece of furniture, or something else - and a browser does not know how to display it.

XSL describes how the XML document should be displayed!

XSL is more than a Style Sheet Language and consists of three parts:

    XSLT - a language for transforming XML documents
    XPath - a language for navigating in XML documents
    XSL-FO - a language for formatting XML documents
