pre newbie question

Hi Group,

It is humiliating to ask such a basic here, but everything that I have read
presumes more knowledge than I have got. I am learning  XML  from a book and
trying to get the dreaded "hello world" into my browser. The book says that
I must make a XML document (done that), make a style sheet (done that) and
then convert it to HTML. This is where I am stuck. Why must I do this ? The
book also says that I must ftp a file down called MSXSL.EXE and it will do
the required conversion. I have looked for the file at the recommended site
and it does not exist. I have done a search and can't find it either.

I obviously have zero knowledge about XML. If anyone can point me in the
direction of a resource, I would be most grateful. And does anybody know
where I can get the MSXSL.EXE  from, or is there another alternative ?
