What is the difference between XSL and XSLT?
XSLT 1.0 was published as a W3C recommendation in November 1999.
XSLT was part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)'s Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) development effort of 1998–1999, a project that also produced XSL-FO and XPath.
XSLT 2.0 Recommendation published on 23 January 2007.
After an abortive attempt to create a version 1.1 in 2001, the XSL working group joined forces with the XQuery working group to create XPath 2.0, with a richer data model and type system based on XML Schema. Building on this is XSLT 2.0, developed under the editorship of Michael Kay, which reached recommendation status in January 2007. As of 2010, however, XSLT 1.0 is still widely used, since 2.0 is not supported natively in web browsers or for environments like LAMP.
XSLT 3.0 became a W3C Recommendation on 8 June 2017. The main new features are:
XSLT is a functional language and requires a different way of thinking compared to procedural languages.
