In the last years, several approaches have been proposed to easily capture main multidimensional (MD) properties at the conceptual level. In this paper, we present how to handle MD models by using the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) through a Document Type Definition (DTD) and the eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT). To accomplish this objective, we start by providing a DTD which allows to directly generate valid XML documents that represents MD properties at the conceptual level. Afterwards, we provide XSLT stylesheets to automatically generate HTML pages that correspond to different presentations of the same MD model.
