XSLT stands for Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations.

It is an XML language that describes how to transform one XML language into another.

Consider the following XML file:


The following XSLT file describes such a transformation:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <p><xsl:value-of select="//firstname"/></p>
        <p><xsl:value-of select="//lastname"/></p>

The output is as follows:


The System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform transform class efficiently performs

XLST transforms. It renders XmlTransform obsolete. XmlTransform works very simply:

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Xml;

using System.Xml.Xsl;
using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
class Program
    static void Main()

        XslCompiledTransform transform = new XslCompiledTransform();
        transform.Transform("input.xml", "output.xml");
