I'm actually using both the Java and C++ version of Xalan to do the
transformations.  While I am doing some webpage generation with xslt, I'm
having the most fun with it for C++ and Java source code generation.
(The project that I'm working on uses XML for IPC messages as well as
internally for data structures.)

I've not checked xsltproc (either the CLI version that Ralf mentioned or
the xemacs mode since that says it is not an editor).  To by honest, I
find the Java version of Xalan nice to run for my testing but editing the
xslt files is so painful in xml-mode that I usually just use vim.
