In what context? Are you just trying to create a new list  view, present
data in DVWP, or something else?

Remember, lists  don't "look like" anything; they're just collections of

I want to use lists  to populate certain features on a
public facing site without them looking like a list, say for instance use a link
list to populate a footer stacked two rows, the title populates the text, the
link field populates the href, and the description populates the atl, I want to
give the user a single place to go and maintain these different pieces of their
site using lists but the splash page is not going to look like sp @ all.

What you want is a server control or web part that could be put on the page
where the data is pulled from a list. That is very easy to do with custom
programming, but very difficult to do any other way. You could also do it
by creating custom XSLT for an XML web part. But that isn't really any
easier than custom programming.

You mean something like this?


The course calendar is a composite of three different SharePoint lists. The
About->Bios and News pages each hit one list. DataView/DataForm web parts
are loads of fun; you can do just about whatever you want with the markup
around the data.

If you want individual list  items to populate specific sections of the page,
you can use a single-item view instead and modify it to your aesthetic

Didn't see this hit the just wondering if there are any good  tut's or videos
etc. I know Paul Stork did a really good branding  video for Microsoft I was
there watching the live but I am more interested in the lists, someone had
mentioned xslt, is there any good xslt resources anyone has used?
