Presenting a DXL file to users

DXL is an excellent tool for converting Domino data into XML, which is especially useful for getting out the content of RT fields. But if you would like to present it to users, you should convert DXL into HTML, probably with an XSL file. Do I have to create it on my own? Do you have any information where I can find it?
If "it" is the XSL file then "yes" you're on your own. Reason being that XML is a tagging standard and not a file format standard. So, there are too many formats floating around the Internet World to provide XSL files, plus they are complicated to write. Wrox Press has a good book on XSL that should help you along your way. The nice thing about learning XSL is that it is XML to the Nth degree. So, you learn a lot about XML along the way.
