XSL Transformations in C#

In Visual Studio 2005 (yea–this happened a few years ago), Microsoft redesigned the architecture of their XSL transformations. It wasn’t difficult to execute a simple transformation before, but it’s downright ridiculous now.

Here’s a complete example of executing a simple XSL transformation:

using System.Xml.Xsl;

namespace Xml.XslTransformation
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            var prog = new Program();

        public void Run()
            var xslt = new XslCompiledTransform();
            xslt.Transform("sample.xml", "output.xml");
