4.9. Summary

We've covered a lot of ground in this chapter, haven't we? We've gone over all of the basic elements you need to add logic and branching to your stylesheets. We discussed some of the similarities between XSLT and other programming languages you might know; more importantly, we discussed how XSLT is different from most of the code you've probably written. In particular, the use of recursion and the principles of variables that don't change take some getting used to. Despite the learning curve, most of the common tasks you'll need to do will be similar to the exercises we've gone through in this chapter. Now that we've covered these basic elements, we'll talk about links and references, discovering ways to build links between different parts of an XML document.
