$ apt-cache show sablotron
Description: an XSL processor fully implemented in C++
 Sablotron is an XSL processor fully implemented in C++.
 The goal of this project is to create a reliable and
 fast XSLT processor conforming to the W3C specification, which is
 available for public and can be used as a base for multiplatform XML
 data distribution systems.
 This package includes Sablotron binaries, which need libsablot0
 to work.

I use Sablotron, and have had good experiences with it. It is fast,
written in C++ (so you can avoid the Java mess), and has a Perl interface
available (XML::Sablotron).

Check out the links on the w3c page (http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/) and
http://www.xslt.com/. There's also a very helpful mailing list hosted by
Mulberry Technologies at http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/.
