I am just dipping my toe into the XML/XSLT water and since I find it 
easier to learn from examples was wondering if any of you kind souls 
could send me some sample files so I can get an idea of what can be 

I already have links to a number of sites and a couple of books on the 
subject but would ideally like to get my hands on a real world example 
to pick apart.

I am messing around with some code in ASP.Net to handle the 
transformation and am slowly building up my first XSLT template based 
on a site I am working on.

Ultimately I want to convert my ASP.Net based CMS app to use XML/XSLT 
for templating.

Here is a snippet of some code that I am working on.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
<xsl:output method="html" version="1.0" doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD 
XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" doctype-
<xsl:template match="/">
<html lang="eng" xml:lang="eng" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
 <title>New Company Website Design</title>
 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
 <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/STYLES/basic.css">
 <div id="mainmenu">
 <li id="menu1"><a href="#">About Company</a></li>
 <li id="menu2"><a href="#">Housing opportunities</a></li>
 <li id="menu3"><a href="#">Regeneration</a></li>

[One of the key things is that I want to be able to XHTML so just for 
tidyness, I would like to find some way of preventing it automatically 
adding the <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; 
charset=utf-8"> tag above the title in the page header]

I now want to try to build it up so that the menus (bulleted lists) and 
main page content are extracted from an XML file.

Do any of you have a set of XML/XSLT files that you could email me to 
show examples of a reasonably complex site designs that I could look 

Don't worry, if you do help out, I won't bug you by asking why you did 
x, y, or z - I should be able to work it out.

Thanks in advance.
