> Dear all,
We are pleased to announce a technology preview of the Microsoft XSL
Processor based on the "Proposal for XSL" (jointly submitted to the W3C in
September by Microsoft, Inso Corporation, and Arbortext).  This early
release is intended to allow for prototyping and validation of the ideas
described in the Proposal for XSL, and to share our early implementation
experience with the Web community.

> The Microsoft XSL Processor transforms XML-based data into HTML and CSS
> using an XSL stylesheet, and implements many of the features described in
> the "Proposal for XSL".  The XSL Processor is available in two packages:
> *	The Microsoft XSL ActiveX Control uses an XSL stylesheet to display
> XML data directly within web pages and applications.
> *	The Microsoft XSL Command-line Utility produces an HTML document
> from an XML document and an XSL stylesheet.
> The Microsoft XSL Processor can be found at
> http://www.microsoft.com/xml/xsl.  This newly launched XSL portion of the
> XML web site features:
> *	Downloads and instructions for the two Microsoft XSL Processor
> packages.
> *	Sample stylesheets and live demos.
> *	An XSL Tutorial, describing the concepts behind XSL and the
> available features of the Microsoft XSL Processor.
> *	Links to the Proposal for XSL, and other XSL information.
> Note: The above URL is located within the XML area of the Microsoft Web
> site, which has also been expanded and moved to
> http://www.microsoft.com/xml.
