On Friday morning, I sat in on Stephan Schmidt's "Introduction to XSLT with PHP" presentation. What I found interesting here was not how XSLT works (I already knew that) but the two things I learned. First, I finally got a handle on XPath syntax. I'd heard that it is powerful--a sort of "regular expressions for XML" but never spent more than 10 seconds looking at it. Now I have a much better appreciation for it.
The second thing I got out of it was an idea of how many XSLT related PHP modules are floating around out there. I expected there was just one or two. The good news is that XSLT with PHP seems to be decent now and rapidly improving.
