I am working with a Yahoo store owner trying to submit inventory as a data feed; I can grab the data from the website in the form of an XML file by using a Yahoo store convention of:, but that has too much information that I don't need in the product feed. I am trying to turn this XML file into a RSS 2.0 format with only specific fields from the XML file.

Would it be better to use a script to populate the file or a specific program?

I'd write an XSLT stylesheet to convert it, then use either an XSLT library for a programming language or a tool such as xsltproc to process it.

cool, so the XSLT stylesheet is like the template for the product file, in this case RSS? and i will process the xml file with the XSLT template through a language with appropriate library or use a tool? – fightermagethief Feb 8 '11 at 2:09
That is the essentials of it, yes. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 8 '11 at 2:10
