Use XML to store configurations and convert to different file formats

I want to use XML to store a document's configurations. And I can convert
to different file format by using XSL. For example, convert to HTML,
PDF, or RTF. But the contents are all stored in single XML file.

Are they any documentation management tools/web site that help people do that?
please help. thanks!!

You can use XSLT to convert XML to HTML and to XSL-FO which can then be
converted to PDF.
The XSLT 1.0 documentation is at
you can find XSLT processors at
and several other places.
A free FO formatter is available from

If you use an existing document type for your configuration data there
might well be existing solutions/stylesheets to transform to HTML and/or
PDF but I don't know a DTD for that, try a search engine.

I am struggling a bit with XML, even as I wade through endless help files and several books.

What I want to do now is save the...

Is there a way I can use different references for different configurations of my project? I have different project (and solution) configurations. Do I have to 'Add reference' of all the dll's I use to the project, (in all its configurations) even that some configurations does not use this references? e.g: version_Demo_configuration does not use the same refernces as version_Full_product_configuration.
