  -<p>For nostalgia's sake, a short overview of Cocoon's history
  -    might appear here.</p>
  +<p> Cocoon started simply enough. In 1998 Jon Stevens -- of Apache JServ,
  +    Turbine, Velocity, Anakia, and Tigris Scarab fame -- and I created scripts
  +    that managed the automatic update of the java.apache.org site. The scripts
  +    were dead simple: iterate over all the CVS modules that java.apache.org had
  +    under the /docs and copy them to the right place.</p>
  +    
  +<p>The problem was that people were continously messing up the docs. Few
  +    people want to write documentation for open source projects; when they do,
  +    you thank them and don't complain about coherence of style and stuff like
  +    that. Or you won't have any docs at all.</p>
  +    
  +<p>The solution was obvious: we needed a way to separate style from
  +    content. In late 1998 the first XSL working draft was released and IBM
  +    made a Java XSL processor, LotusXSL, available. I downloaded both and
  +    started to play around with what was later called XSLT. While playing with
  +    this stuff, I quickly grew tired of typing a command line, moving to the
  +    browser to see the result, over and over. I wanted a less tedious
  +    change-transform-reload cycle.</p>
  +    
  +<p>So I wrote a servlet that handled the tedious bits for me; I could
  +    modify the stylesheet, hit reload on the browser, and the servlet would
  +    handle everything. This was at the very end of 1998 and Ron Howard's movie
  +    Cocoon was playing on the television, which explains the weird name only
  +    partially. I believed at the time that these technologies were a key part
  +    of the future of the Web, so a cocoon was just what was needed to allow
  +    them to incubate and grow stronger.</p>
  +    
  +<p>Apache Cocoon 1.0 was a servlet, about 100 lines of code, that used
  +    XML4J (later Apache Xerces) and LotusXSL (later Apache Xalan) to transform
  +    an XML file with an XSL stylesheet. At that time, XSLT, XPath and XSL:FO
  +    were still part of one big spec. I didn't think it was very useful for
  +    anyone else so I kept it on my disk for a few months. Then, around March
  +    1999, on the jserv-dev mail list somebody was asking about XSL, and I said
  +    that I'd written a servlet that did all that transformation on the server
  +    side. Many people asked for it, so I requested a formal vote and the Apache
  +    Cocoon project was started under the java.apache.org umbrella.</p>
  +
  +	
  +<p>The 1.0 version contained very little code, but lots of examples and
  +	some simple docs that explained what XSL was and why I thought it	was
  +	important to learn it. After its release, people started joining active
  +	development, and we turned a small servlet into a full XML-based publishing
  +	system, which is now used in many production sites around the world.</p>
  +	
  +	
  +<p>But Cocoon 1.x was designed when the XML world was very young and
  +	experience was very small and it was based under several design choices
  +	that turned to be very limiting.  So, around November 1999, I expressed the
  +	intention to work on the next generation (what people started calling
  +	Cocoon2 or simply C2) to solve all those architectural issues.</p>
  +	
  +	
  +<p>It took two years and three different project leaders to finish Cocoon
  +	2.0 but we made it.  It's an XML framework that raises the usage of XML and
  +	XSLT technologies for server applications to a new level. Designed for
  +	performance and scalability around pipelined SAX processing, Cocoon offers
  +	a flexible environment based on the separation of concerns between content,
  +	logic and style. A centralized configuration system and sophisticated
  +	caching enable you to create, deploy, and maintain rock-solid XML server
  +	applications.</p>
  +	
  +	
  +<p>Cocoon was designed as an abstract engine that could be connected to
  +	almost anything, but it ships with servlet and command line connectors. The
  +	servlet connector allows you to call Cocoon from your favorite servlet
  +	engine or application server. You can install it beside your existing
  +	servlets or JSPs. The command line interface allows you to generate static
  +	content as a batch process. It can be useful to pre-generate those parts of
  +	your site that are static, some of which may be easier to create by using
  +	Cocoon functionalities than directly (say, SVG rasterization or applying
  +	stylesheets). For example, the Cocoon documentation and web site are all
  +	generated by Cocoon from the command line.</p>
  +	
  +<p>The history will continue here...</p>
