Most of the existing solutions for expressing XML transformations are textual languages, such as XSLT or DOM combined with a generalpurpose programming language. Several tools build on top of these languages, providing a graphical environment. Transformations are however still speci ed in a textual way using the underlying language (often XSLT), thus requiring the user to learn the associated textual language. We believe that visual programming techniques are well-suited to representing XML structures and make the speci cation of transformations simpler. We present a visual programming language for the speci cation of XML transformations in an interactive environment, based on a zoomable user interface toolkit. Transformations can be run from the application or exported
