I'm writting an application, a control panel for a web site, and it will be
great if I can separe data from presentation, I know that I have to work
with XML and XSL but I didn't understand how it works.

Can you give me a simple example?

Let guess that a client request index.php, and I have index.xml for the
data, index.xsl for the data transformation and index.php, how it works?
