It is often said, specially in marketing publications, that you need XSL to do
anything with XML.
THIS IS PURE BULLSHIT!
XML is a subset of SGML. You can use any SGML tool, like jade, which I use to
process my DocBook/XML files.
Also, you can use custom programs written with the SAX or the DOM APIs, for
which implementations exist for many programming languages.

Exactly the same :-)
