XSLT Processing Overview

  • The XSLT processor parses the XSLT document.

  • The XSLT processor starts parsing the source XML document.

  • It processes every node in the XML source document one by one.

  • For every node it processes...

    • The processor checks whether the current node matches a XSLT rule (template)


      The rule is defined using an XPath.
    • If it matches a XSLT template, it uses this template to process the node.
