How to convert XML to HTML?

By GeoWassung ·
I am a perl noob, but have been given the task of converting an XML file to several small HTML pages. Any suggestions, or directions would be appreciated. I have looked at XML::Simple, but haven't figured out a "simple" way to create the pages once the XML is parsed.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks dbBen, Yes I have checked out several of the converters. So far, with most that I have looked at is the lack of flexibility/customization with the low end ones. And the "free trials" of the higher end apps, are limited until you make the purchase. I am scripting a "converter" with perl and finding it fairly strait forward.
Again, thanks,

What do you mean convert it?

HTML is based on XML, but XML is not HTML. XML is a representation of data, HTML is a mark up language.
If you want XML to display like a webpage, add a CSS file to the XML and style it.
You can also check out XSLT transform.

also, if the xml was created and saved by an msoffice2007 module, like word, it can be re-saved as html by word to complete the transformation.
