Thank you gfellenz,

i don't know about special xslt resources for indesign.
maybe in this book (i don't own it):
but in most cases you don't need sophisticated xslts for indesign. i.e. the
standard xslt literature/howtos etc. schould do fine.
i can't point you to an howto but i love this reference (keep in mind that you
need the extension for the functx: namespace):
Thank you gregor, I'll take a look to this reference; I'm total newby to XSLT, so any suggestions would be surely fine.. another question: do you think it's better to work with XSLT or XmlRules?

there is no short answer on this. it depends on your documents/data you
want to process, what to achieve and you're knowledge in scripting vs.
xslt. i use xmlRules for styling my documents, xslt for data transformation.
in general you've got more control, especially over the rendered
document, using xmlRules. if you want to process layout rules/guidelines
in dependency of the actual document you have to render it first.
complex data transformation and composition is better with xslt outside
of indesign. i prefer to prepare my data (select relevant data,
numbering, ...) with xslt.
