I have two functions which are functions of t. Let's just say x1[t] and x2[t]. I want to plot x1 vs x2. How do I do this?

I would not delete this just because it's simple. It's another Google entry point. I can imagine beginners googling precisely for the title of this question. – Szabolcs Dec 8 '13 at 19:06

ParametricPlot will do this. You can see several examples on its documentation page.

ParametricPlot[{x1[t], x2[t]}, {t, 0, 1}]
