Yes, I have tried it several months ago.   It is actually pretty cool.
The BizTalk Mapper allows you to import XML and other formats, i.e.,
EDI.  On the left side the structure of what you are mapping from is
shown.  On the right side the structure of what you are mapping
too is shown.  You can load your DTD or BizTalk Schema into the
tool to get the structure.

You create the map by dragging from the left side to where you want
the component mapped to on the right side.  They also have a feature
that allows you to create VBScript for doing functions within the
mapping.  Microsoft calls this feature "functoids".

The tool is really pretty cool but at the time that I was looking
at it, it created Microsoft specific XSL. I am not sure if this
is still the case.
