What Is an SPS?
A StyleVision Power Stylesheet (or SPS) is an extended XSLT stylesheet which is used to graphically create a design for an HTML output document
An SPS is saved with the file extension .sps.
Design of the SPS
The SPS and XSLT stylesheets
After you have completed designing the SPS, you can generate XSLT stylesheets based on the design you have created. StyleVision supports XSLT 1.0, XSLT 2.0 and XSLT 3.0, and from a single SPS, you can generate XSLT stylesheets for HTML, RTF, XSL-FO, Text, and Word 2007-and-higher output (XSL-FO, Text, and Word 2007-and-higher in Enterprise edition only; RTF and Text in Enterprise and Professional Editions; in Basic Edition only HTML output is supported). The generated XSLT stylesheets can be used in external transformations to transform XML documents based on the same schema as the SPS from which the XSLT stylesheet was generated. For more information about procedures used with XSLT stylesheets, see the section Generated Files.
The SPS and output
You can also use StyleVision to directly generate output (HTML, RTF, Text, XSL-FO, and PDF in Enterprise Edition; HTML and RTF in Professional Edition; and HTML in Basic Edition). The tabs for Output Views display the output for the active SPS document directly in the StyleVision GUI. The required output can also be generated to file from within the GUI via the File | Save Generated Files command or via StyleVision Server.
