B.1. Sorting Out the Acronyms

When learning XSLT, there are three primary specifications to be aware of: XSL (sometimes referred to as XSL-FO), XSLT, and XPath. Originally, these three languages were just parts of a single language, XSL, or "Extensible Stylesheet Language".

XPath is used by XSLT, which is in turn used by XSL.
