XSLT has the ability to completely restructure the input-tree, including adding tags, changing tags, removing tags, and changing the order of tags. Definitely a lot more powerful than CSS which just lets you control piddly little display attribute stuff like colors, fonts, margins, etc.

Basically, with XSLT, you can take any sort of XML document, pick out certain parts of it, and rewrite those parts in another XML or HTML format.
