I haven't tried xhtml personally but the following site looks like it might
be very informative: http://www.refsnesdata.no/xhtml/

As far as XSLT, apache.org has two tools Xerces (for XML parsing) and Xalan
(for XLS transforms). There are some examples there as well.
http://xml.apache.org/
... follow links to Xalan Java and Xerces Java for downloads and other
details.

Do you have to do any dynamic page generation? If so, try
http://www.newatlanta.com/, they have a JSP engine that you could use, if
you want to go that route. Personally, I'd avoid the additional
complexity...

Thank you very much for your fast answer.
I've to deal with WAP phones an Wireless Palm.
My teacher has suggested me to do everiything in XHTMl
but i still don't understand how could it help me.
Probably it's because i've haven't studied it so much.
Could you please suggest me a book about XSLT (or it's
better follow W3C specifichs?)
Thank you again
