if you go to https://svn.collab.net/, you can see three different
browsing options for their repository. Plain html (which is what most
people use, because you automatically get that if you set up
Subversion with Apache), ViewVC (which requires an extra tool to be
installed), and xml. The xml part is what this is all about.
You can instruct Subversion (more specific: the mod_dav_svn module) to
output xml instead of html when a browser is pointed at its url.
Browsers can transform xml data automatically if the xml data contains
the information where to find the xsl (the xml transformation file).

xml + xsl = anything you want (in our case: pretty html)

You can find some more information in the Subversion book:

The xsl file from Will Etson is a modified version of the xsl file
Subversion uses at https://svn.collab.net/ - the modification adds an
icon to the right of every folder. A click on that icon will then
start TortoiseSVN with the checkout dialog (via the tsvn: protocol).
