Dear all,

I am 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  This newly launched XSL portion of the
XML web site features:
*	Downloads and instructions for the two Microsoft XSL Processor
*	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
