I've been looking at the namespace-alias element, but I am still
confused how this helps me transform two different xml files using one
Stylesheet.  The only thing that I have been able to do is convert one
Stylesheet to another.  I could do this using the replace feature in my
IDE in a timelier manner.  

I'm probably just pretty confused on this.  Maybe someone can shed some
more light on this?

Sorry, I'm not aware of any more detailed worked examples. I've come
across projects making very elaborate use of meta-stylesheets, but I
can't point you to any resources. But stylesheets are just XML
documents, so you should be able to work it out for yourself.
