Step 3: Testings the maps
Now that the maps have been created (or downloaded), you should
run a test or two before running the automated script.
Testing the Stylesheet
Testing the Stylesheet is a little more tricky. There are many tools
out on the market for doing stylesheet development (we're even working
on our own), and you may use any application you choose of course, but
at this time we recommend using XRay, freely downloadable at
With XRay, you can load in the PO.xml and the POto850.xsl, and then combine
them to view the output and make sure it looks proper. And if it does,
save it out named 850.xml (we will be using it to test the xmlLinguist
Testing the xmlLinguist Map
Testing the xmlLinguist Map is very easy. In the xmlLinguist GUI,
with the 850.ltm loaded, simply click on Map | Run. This will display
a dialog (shown below) that allows you to select a file to translate,
a direction to translate, and the output file. Enter in the 850.xml file
(either from our download, or as created from using the XRay application)
for the first file edit box, select the ToText option for direction,
and enter 850test.txt as the output filename.
After clicking OK, find the 850.txt file and open it in Window's
Notepad.exe to see if it looks correct or not.
Satisfied wiht the results of your tests, move on to
