The user interface has been simplified in Dreamweaver and later. As a result, you may not find some of the options described in this article in Dreamweaver and later. For more information, see this article.
You can perform client-side XSL transformations. Read about server-side and client-side XSL transformations and about using XML and XSL with web pages before building pages that display XML data.
The general workflow for performing client-side XSL transformations is as follows (each step is described in other topics):
In your Dreamweaver site, create an entire XSLT page.
Convert an existing HTML page to an entire XSLT page.
If appropriate, add a Repeating Region XSLT object to the table or table row that contains the XML data placeholder(s).
When you do so, the browser transforms the XML data, formats it with the XSLT page, and displays the styled page in the browser.
You must use an entire XSLT page for client-side transformations. (XSLT fragments don’t work for this type of transformation.) Follow these general steps for creating, binding XML data to, and formatting XSLT pages for client-side transformations:
After you have an entire XSLT page with dynamic content placeholders for your XML data, you must insert a reference to the XSLT page in the XML page.
The XML and XSL files you use for client-side transformations must reside in the same directory. If they don’t, the browser will read the XML file and find the XSLT page for the transformation, but will fail to find assets (style sheets, images, and so on) defined by relative links in the XSLT page.
