XML Transformation Tool for Windows

At the suggestion of several people I am making generaly available a simple tool that carries out batch transformations of XML files under windows 95, 98, or NT. Although stable, it is very much alpha ware and is still a 'work in process'. I would be glad of any feed back from members of this list.
It was written for an undergraduate class and requires no more skills to run than than basic windows skills but in spite of that it is quite powerful and can easily handle documents up to 2M in size. (I haven't tested it on anything larger)
This tool is exerpted from a larger editing tool which uses the MSXML parser. However as the later is in flux and the MSXML dll has not been released or liscensed for general use, I have split the transformation tool off from the editing and DOM tool.
'TransformXML' allows the following proceeses to be automated:
- Creating a list of xml files for processing.
- Running a list of commands on each file.
- Transforming one xml nametag to another.
It has not yet been optimized for speed. for example on a middle of the road platform it takes about 1 minute to convert an XML file marked up by Jon Bosak into HTML. It took 20 minutes to transform the complete works of Shakespeare from xml to xhtml.
It uses the VB5 dll's which are also available if needed.
More details are available in the 'readme' text.
