Thread: Transforming XML

    Transforming XML


    Hi,

    While I spend a lot of time working with web technologies, more recently
    with .net framework, I have not yet worked with XML to any great degree.
    I understand the many advantages it has, however there is one thing I don't
    understand. I know that it possible to use XSLT to transform a single XML
    file into other markup languages. So, for example, if I have a 'Hello World'
    xml file and I access it from IE6 and a WAP enabled mobile telephone, how
    does the server know which XSLT to use to generate a response?

    Many thanx,

    Mark

    Re: Transforming XML

    You tell your application which to use based on the User Agent string of the
    requesting agent.
