    At the risk of sounding clueless, I need to ask how to use the command line interface, or where to find the information in help files. I have an xml file, a DTD, and an xslt file, and want to use the xslt to generate an xhtml file.

    This partly depends on whether your XSLT stylesheet is XSLT 1.0 or 2.0.

    If it's XSLT 1.0, your best bet is to download xsltproc (see http://www.xmlsoft.org/XSLT/xsltproc2.html for details).

    If you need v. 2.0, you could download Saxon and try that.

    XMLCE currently uses the library that's behind xsltproc.

    If you're going to work on the command line a lot, it will be worth your while familiarising yourself with the basic tools of your command line shell (e.g. you might say 'clear' on *nix or 'cls' on Win; 'ls -la' on *nix or 'dir /w' on Win; etc.).

    HTH,

    Thanks for your help.  xsltproc/xmllib  seems the right direction for what I want to do.
