In This Chapter
Grasping XSLT is kind of like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Even my 7-year-old knows that the best way to approach a puzzle is to first connect all the pieces of the outer border and then work your way inside, eventually filling in all the missing spaces.
In a sense, this book follows that same pattern. Chapter 1 defines the conceptual edges of the XSLT puzzle by talking about the cast of characters , the X-team. This chapter fills in the remaining edge pieces as it deals with the mechanics of XSLTthe materials you need and the process you follow for doing transformations. After you finish this chapter, the puzzle edge will all be connected; the rest of the book then focuses on filling in all thats left of this jigsaw puzzle.
