As we discovered in Part 1 of this series, a valid XSLT template and stylesheet must be available to transform XML data into HTML Output. (Note that I will be using the latest update, Symphony 1.5.06, for this tutorial.) At this point, though, we have no data to transform. Next, we need to create an XML Data Source. But, before we get there, let’s discover what is possible in Symphony even without a Data Source. The power of Symphony comes in the ability to build HTML pages by assembling pieces of reusable HTML code and XSLT templates into modular page structures through Masters, Pages and Utilities.
