Python[1] is an easy to learn alternative. The markup porcessing modules 
included in the stock Python library may be all you need.  If that isn't 
enough then try installing the PyXML package from sourceforge[2]. The 2.2 
release, which is in a second beta, includes many of the PyXML components.  
You can get some idea of the code required to use the Python modules from the 
markup section[3] of the 2.2 release documentation. The 4suite extensions add 
additional support to the PyXML package.  This extension includes "4XSLT ... 
an XSLT processor".  The trend seems to be for the 4Suite[4] extensions to 
eventually migrate to PyXML and then finally to the stable Python release.
