XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language, formerly called Extensible Style Language) is a language for creating a that describes how data sent over the Web using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) is to be presented to the user.
eXtensible Stylesheet Language A family of recommendations for defining XML document transformation and presentation. It consists of XSLT, XPath and XSL-FO. Find out more: The W3C's XSL Documentation.
eXtensible Stylesheet Language. A W3C standard used with XML. XSL comprises a language for transforming XML documents into another markup language format, together with a vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics. Commonly used to convert XML data to HTML for presentation in a Web browser environment. An XSL processor is one of the suite of XML application enablers delivered with OS/400.

tensible tylesheet anguage. A programming language that creates stylesheets to transform XML documents into different file formats (for instance, HTML, text, or PDF). (Note that XSL cannot produce a PDF document. XSL transforms to FO, and then an FO processor transforms FO to PDF). Using an XSL processor, it is possible to transform an XML document via multiple XSL stylesheets which will display the document in multiple formats without changing the original XML document.
The style standard for XML. Like CSS, it specifies the presentation and appearance of an XML document.
Extensible Stylesheet Language, more information ...
A suite of XML languages developed by W3C, including XSLT, XSL-FO and XPath.
XSL is a language for expressing stylesheets. It consists of two parts: XSL Transformations (XSLT): a language for transforming XML documents An XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics (XSL Formatting Objects) An XSL stylesheet specifies the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary. See also XSLT More at http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/, http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl
The E tensible Stylesheet Language is like CSS for XML. It provides a means of describing how an XML resource should be displayed.
Is a language (described in XML) to provide style sheet information for XML documents and XPATH functionality.
eXtensible Styling Sheet Language The key to rendering documents in XML is that the content and presentation are separate with XML. The information is in the document, while the rendering instructions are elsewhere. This makes it easy to create multiple renderings for the same document.
A style sheet language, like CSS, but also allowing document transformation.
XSL is a language for creating a style sheet that describes how data sent over the Web using XML is to be presented to the user. XSL specifies the styling of an XML document by using XSLT to describe how the document is transformed into another XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary.
XSL has two parts to it: a transformation vocabulary (XSL Transformations - XSLT) and a formatting vocabulary (XSL Formatting Objects (XSL FOs).
eXtensible Stylesheet Language. W3C standard draft released in August 1998, it describes how XML pages are presented by an XSL processor/browser. There are a number of XSL processors available, some are listed at w3.org/XML/.
Extensible Stylesheet Language. An important standard that achieves several goals. XSL lets you: Specify an addressing mechanism, so you can identify the parts of an XML file that a transformation applies to. ( XPath) Specify tag conversions, so you convert XML data into a different formats. ( XSLT) Specify display characteristics, such page sizes, margins, and font heights and widths, as well as the flow objects on each page. Information fills in one area of a page and then automatically flows to the next object when that area fills up. That allows you to wrap text around pictures, for example, or to continue a newsletter article on a different page. ( XML-FO)
XML Stylesheet Language. W3C specification for a family of languages, such as XSLT and XPath, that describes how XML documents are to be formatted or transformed.
The eXtensible Stylesheet Language is syntax for defining the display of XML information.
The Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) is a language for creating a style sheet that corresponds to an XML document. The style sheet defines how the information in the XML document is to be displayed in a Web page. Find out how Altova tools facilitate working with XSL. Documentation is available on the W3C XSL page.
(eXtensible Stylesheet Language) a standard from the W3C for describing a style sheet for XML documents. It is the XML counterpart to the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in HTML and is also compatible with CSS2. XSL is made up of three components: (1) XSL Transformations (XSLT) is the processing language for XSL. It is used to convert XML documents into HTML or other document types and may be used independently of XSL. (2) XML Path Language (Xpath) is used to identify and select tagged elements within an XML document, and (3) XSL Formatting Objects (XSL FO) provides the format vocabulary.
eXtensible style language defines the styles associated with XML files
A specification for separating style from content when creating HTML or XML pages. The specifications work much like templates, allowing designers to apply single style documents to multiple pages. XSL is the second style specification to be offered by the World Wide Web Consortium. The first, called Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), is similar to XSL but does not include two major XSL's innovations -- allowing developers to dictate the way web pages are printed, and specifications allowing one to transfer XML documents across different applications.
XML Stylesheet Language. A language based on XML and used to specify markup that affects another document (typically, another XML document). XSL is commonly used to translate XML content into HTML, PDF, or another XML format. SCT uses XSL transformations within relay components to transform OpenEAI Message Protocol messages to and from third party vendor format messages.
Extensible Stylesheet Language, a language for expressing stylesheets in XML syntax. Includes XSLT and XSL-FO.
(Extensible Stylesheet Language) A set of standards that allow presentation instructions to be encoded in XML and applied to XML documents.
tensible tylesheet anguage - XSL is a language for expressing stylesheets. XPath, an expression language used by XSLT to access or refer to parts of an XML document. An XSL stylesheet specifies the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary. XPath is a language for addressing parts of an XML document, designed to be used by both XSLT and XPointer.
Extensible Stylesheet Language specified by W3C. The language is used for expressing stylesheets and consist of a language for transforming XML documents, and an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics. The stylesheet is itself an XML document.
The eXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) is a family of languages which allows one to describe how files encoded in the XML standard are to be formatted or transformed.
Extensible Stylesheet Language W3C Working Draft 21 Apr 1999 XSL is a style sheet language based on the principals of XML and more powerful than CSS. XSL consists of two main components: XSLT (which concerns the document tree) and formatting (which is based on CSS 2.0).
XSL was the original proposal to allow formatting of XML files for display. It has since diverged into XSL FO and XSLT. They each derrive from XSL, but use different parser programs and acheive slightly different goals. XSL FO, which stands for XSL formatting objects, is most often used for outputting PDF files with extreme formatting and pagination control. XSLT, which stands for XSL transformations, is most often used to convert one XML data structure into another.
(Extensible Stylesheet Language) XSL associates presentation characteristics (such as layout) with the markup used in Extensible Markup Language (XML). One of the XML family of languages developed by the World Wide Web Consortium, XSL is used to create XML "stylesheets," which describe how XML documents are presented. XSL provides independent control of presentation from content and can describe output of the same content to different formats (e.g., audio or print). XSL is made up of three components: 1. XSL Transformations (see XSLT) 2. XML Path Language (see XPath) 3. XSL Formatting Objects, an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) A component of Extensible Stylesheet Language (see XSL), XSLT controls views of Extensible Markup Language (XML) documents and the ordering of XML elements. It is used to create new content structures from existing structures or subsets, based on interest, access privileges or security, and it transforms XML structure to Hypertext Markup Language. Specifications for the language are defined in the World Wide Web Consortium's XSLT Recommendation, published in November 1999.
(Extensible Stylesheet Language) - A language for expressing stylesheets. An XSL stylesheet describes how an XML document of a particular type should be displayed. Although XSL formally includes XSLT, XSL is used for primarily for describing how XML documents are to be presented, where XSLT has become the standard language for transforming XML documents. See XML, XSLT, and http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/.
XSL stands for Extensible Style Language. XSL is a specification set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for defining the layout (style sheet) of XML data.
Extensible Stylesheet Language. XSL allows you to transform XML data into a variety of formats, including HTML, PDF, RTF, or to modify your XML data into a new XML document. The two primary components of XSL are XSL-FO (Formatting Objects), used to implement page layout and design, and XSLT, used to transform XML content into another presentation format.
XML Stylesheet Language (See XML Stylesheet Language
Extensible Stylesheet Language. This language creates style sheets that describe how XML pages are to be displayed. It is based on the groundwork laid by CSS and DSSSL.
A language used to transform XML-based data into HTML or other presentation formats, for display in a Web browser. The transformation of XML into formats, such as HTML, is done in a declarative way, often making it easier and more accessible than through scripting. In addition, XSL uses XML as its syntax, freeing XML authors from having to learn another markup language.
Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) is a language for creating a style sheet that describes how data sent over the Web by using XML is to be presented to the user.
eXtensible Stylesheet Language; can be used to transform XML into HTML; from http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/: XSL is a language for expressing stylesheets. It consists of three parts: XSL Transformations (XSLT): a language for transforming XML documents, the XML Path Language (XPath), an expression language used by XSLT to access or refer to parts of an XML document. (XPath is also used by the XML Linking specification). The third part is XSL Formatting Objects: an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting semantics. An XSL stylesheet specifies the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses the formatting vocabulary.
Extensible Scripting Language - an XML style sheet language supported by the newer web browsers Internet Explorer 5 and Netscape 5.
eXtensible Stylesheet Language. A language used for processing XML documents. Common uses are to change an XML file from one format to another, convert XML into HTML and to display the data in an XML file in a browser.

(eXtensible Stylesheet Language)â€”A language created for describing stylesheets for XML documents. Consists of XSLT, XPath, and XML Formatting Objects.
XSL (eXtensible Style Language) is used for separating style from content when creating XML documents. It includes both a transformation and formatting language which can be used independently of each other.
n. Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) is a stylesheet language designed to be used with XML data and documents. It allows the author to map XML tags to some kind of display behavior and apply formatting operations to XML elements. XSL allows the presentation (or multiple presentations) of the XML to be specified. See also XML.
