I'm using xsltproc, a free xslt processor which is available from  I've used it on both Linux and Solaris, and it is
supported on a variety of operating systems, including Windows.

Take a look at Dave Pawson's DocBook FAQ:
specifically on the "Tools" page:
which describes how to set it up on Windows.  (The Linux setup is even easier,
if you can grab RPMs and things.)

For more advice on this and other DocBook tools, you might want to check
