See this:
Includes a working example in two of your favorite languages.

Save your head. Hint for next time: Google on "site:msdn.micr osoft.com .net
xslt xmldocument". The top three items are all relevent.

Here's a little class to make things easier for you ...

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;
using System.Xml;
using System.Xml.Xsl;
using System.Xml.XPat h;
namespace XmlUtils {
/// <summary>
/// Transformer performs an XSLT Transformation.
/// It can be re-used, and is (probably) thread-safe.
/// </summary>
public class XsltTransformer {
private XmlDocument m_objXMLDoc;
private XslTransform m_objXSLTransfo rm;
public XsltTransformer () {
m_objXMLDoc =new XmlDocument();
m_objXSLTransfo rm = new XslTransform();
// With an XmlDocument
public void setXML(XmlDocum ent input) {
m_objXMLDoc = input;
// With an input stream
public void setXML(Stream input) {
m_objXMLDoc.Loa d(input);
// With an XML reader
public void setXML(XmlReade r reader) {
if(reader!=null )
m_objXMLDoc.Loa d(reader);
// With a plain string
public void setXML(string strXML) {
if(strXML.Lengt h > 0)
m_objXMLDoc.Loa dXml(strXML);
public string getXML() {
if(m_objXMLDoc! =null)
return m_objXMLDoc.Inn erXml;
return null;

// With a plain stringpath
public void setXSL(string strXMLPath) {
if(strXMLPath.L ength > 0)
m_objXSLTransfo rm.Load(strXMLP ath);
// With an XmlDocument instance
public void setXSL(XmlDocum ent xsl) {
m_objXSLTransfo rm.Load(xsl.Doc umentElement.Cr eateNavigator() );
public void Transform(Syste m.IO.TextWriter output) {
XPathNavigator navigator = m_objXMLDoc.Doc umentElement.Cr eateNavigator() ;
XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(o utput);
m_objXSLTransfo rm.Transform(na vigator, null, writer);
public string TransformToStri ng() {
XPathNavigator navigator = m_objXMLDoc.Doc umentElement.Cr eateNavigator() ;
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder() ;
StringWriter swriter = new StringWriter(sb );
XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(s writer);
m_objXSLTransfo rm.Transform(na vigator, null, writer);
return sb.ToString();

What kind of example do you nedd? XslTransform's Transform() method
accepts XmlDocument as is, 'cause XmlDocument is IXPathNavigable .
