This PHP extension provides a processor independent API to XSLT
transformations. Currently this extension only supports the Sablotron
library from the Ginger Alliance. Support is planned for other
libraries, such as the Xalan library or the libxslt library.
XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Transformations) is a
language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents.
It is a standard defined by The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Information about XSLT and related technologies can be
found at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt.
This extension is different than the sablotron extension distributed with
versions of PHP prior to PHP 4.1, currently only the new XSLT extension in

PHP as of PHP 5.0.0.
