Basically SAX and DOM are for parsing xml and xslt is for transforming xml into html, svg, wml, pdf and the like. So it sounds like you want to use xslt.

Dear all,

I am just approaching to XML and I would need some explanation, which most
of you will probably consider very trivial.

I have read about the XLS Sablotron functions, which are able to apply XLS
stylesheets to an XML document.

My question is: if my aim is to apply to an XML document an XLS stylesheet
server-side (being able in this way to avoid browsers incompatibilies) with
PHP, which could it be my need to use SAX or DOM parsers?

Could XLS Sablotron be seen as an alternative to SAX or DOM, or does in some
ways rely on these technologies?

Really thanks to whom will be able to clarify me on this.
