I hope that you can take this guest book application and use it on your Web site. It works fairly well and can easily be modified to suit your needs. Working through this process will teach you a great deal about using XML and XSLT transforms in your applications. When you do use this, whether you modify it or not, I would absolutely love to see what you have done. Please email me at Rick@jsventures.com and let me know that you have used it so that I can take a look at it.
