    Sorry, but the purpose of RenderX's product XEP is to *render* XSL FO into
    some other form, such as PDF or PostScript.

    I think you're looking for an XSLT transformation engine that *transforms*
    XML into something else, including another XML document (including, but
    definitely not limited to, XSL FO), HTML, plain text, etc.

    I have long been a fan of Michael Kay's no-cost XSLT engine, Saxon. The
    most recent version of Saxon even has some support for the emerging XSLT
    2.0 specification, while still fully supporting XSLT 1.0. You can find
    this engine readily by Googling for it, or by going to

    There are many other XSLT engines, of course, including some from
    Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, and others.

    Hope this helps,
