Treebeard "Often XSLT is used in a background process. For example, transforming an XML document into an HTML page. The process used to write an XSLT document, at least for me, was to write the XSLT in a text editor, save it to a server, and then run the page to see if it transformed correctly. This is a very tedious process if one is just learning XSLT. Most commercial XSLT editor / IDEs are rather expensive, especially if you are an individual just trying to learn XML / XSLT."
