As presented at XML 2007, Boston Massachussetts, by Tommie Usdin and Wendell Piez (link to the slides)

This example shows a transformation mapping specification encoded in a lightweight custom XML format designed for the job, ConversionSpec XML.

Mulberry Technologies, Inc., has used this format and variants and extensions thereof successfully in many projects, and would be happy to provide advice and consulting on applications and extensions of it.

Or use and adapt it freely on your own! (No warranty is implied.)
