    1) Flat File Data Conversion in Stylus Studio - Convert to XML is
    Stylus Studio's new multi-purpose utility for integrating legacy data
    of all sorts (EDI, CSV, Binary, etc.) into XML applications. This video
    provides an overview of the tool and walks you through a sample CSV to
    XML data transformation project. You can use Convert to XML to convert
    individual files, or to build converters that allow you to open flat
    files as XML documents anywhere in Stylus Studio. Once there, the
    XQuery and XSLT skies are the limit:

    2) Generating Java Code in Stylus Studio - Stylus Studio's Java Code
    Generator saves you hours of needless work and error-prone typing by
    automatically generating the Java code needed to run XSLT and XQuery in
    your Java applications. Learn how to leverage this powerful feature in
    just 5 minutes. With no commercial interruption:

    3) EDI to XML Conversion - This video covers a sample EDI-to-XML
    mapping project using Stylus Studio's new EDI-to-XML mapping tools in
    Convert-to-XML. The demonstration starts with loading an EDI file,
    inspecting application control codes, using default conversion
    settings, customizing XML output and other advanced EDI-to-XML mapping

    4) Introduction to WYSIWYG XSLT Editing in Stylus Studio - This classic
    video, lovingly restored using modern-day tools and techniques,
    demonstrates Stylus Studio's WYSIWYG tools for creating static and
    dynamic HTML content, and some basic techniques for creating dynamic,
    XML-data driven tables. Find out how easy it is to develop, convert or
    migrate Web sites to new XML/XHTML and XSLT technologies:

    5) Creating SQL/XML with Stylus Studio - This demonstration shows you
    how to use the DB-to-XML Data Source Editor to connect to a relational
    database, automatically generate SQL/XML, and preview query results as
    XML. It also describes how you can use SQL/XML to define the structure
    of the XML document containing the query results:

    6) XQuery Development in Stylus Studio - XML Query (XQuery) is the W3C
    language for querying XML documents. Stylus Studio's XQuery Mapper lets
    you compose an XQuery using intuitive drag-and-drop tools. This
    demonstration, recorded in hi-def StylusVision, shows you how to use
    Stylus Studio's XQuery Mapper to aggregate data from multiple sources
    using FLWOR and condition blocks:

    7) Developing XSLT Templates with the WYSIWYG XSLT Editor - Stylus
    Studio provides intuitive WYSIWYG tools that let you transform XML into
    HTML using XSLT - without writing any XSLT! Learn how to apply and
    match templates, and how to create, edit, and reuse templates of your
    own: http://www.stylusstudio.com/videos/tutorial3/tutorial3.html

    8) Editing XML files Using Grid View - Stylus Studio's XML Grid View
    makes it easy to visualize, navigate, and edit XML documents with
    tabular (table-like) structures, including XML views of relational
    data. Using the XML Grid View, you can perform advanced XML editing
    operations like sorting, reshaping an XML document, renaming elements,
    moving elements or attributes, and more:

    9) Accessing Relational Data with the URL Builder - The URL Builder is
    a quick and efficient way to extract data from a relational table or
    view and render it as XML, and this video, in spite of its ranking, is
    a quick and efficient way to learn how to use it. This demonstration
    shows you how to use the URL Builder to create a DB-to-XML Data Source,
    and how to reuse the data source to build an XSLT stylesheet:

    10) Using the XML Differencing Utilities in Stylus Studio - See just
    how easy it is to visually compare different XML files or folders using
    Stylus Studio's powerful new XML Differencing Utility. Thrill as you
