I sure hope your poll is multiple-choice, since we sure have multiple uses for XSLT!

1. (a), (b), (d) and (e): code generation
2. (a) and (e) SQL

We use XSLT on the server (i.e. Saxon) to do both static and dynamic generation from:

a. Grails (i.e. Groovy/Java) web services with an RDBMS persistence layer (i.e. Oracle, MySQL)
b. Large collections of static (both local and web-accessible) XML files in various dialects

Outputs include HTML pages, various other XML dialects (e.g. KML), JSON, plain text and simple SQL (inserts) and Java code (beans)

I'm probably forgetting some other uses we've had, but those are the primary ones.
