Links: Saxon-CE and XSLT 2.0 demo - Knight's Tour

Lately, I returned yet again to reading about XML (Extensible Markup Language) and XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations).

Mostly because I'm interested in seeing if I can convert info stored in VUE: Visual Understanding Environment concept map files (which are XML files) into radically different formats using XSLT, which is reputed to be good at drastic transformations of XML data.

Yesterday, I stumbled across Saxon-CE (Client Edition), which is "Saxonica's implementation of XSLT 2.0 for use on web browsers."

I only just started looking at Saxon-CE, so, I haven't yet done anything clever with Saxon-CE myself.

But, I was quite impressed by this demo I found via the Saxon-CE manual:

Knight's Tour


Source Code

I had no idea XSLT could be used for anything like that. :-D

That makes me even more eager than I already was to learn more about XSLT. :-)

Maybe my daydream from last January (and long before that), of being able to edit actual source code with VUE, really could come true. :-)
