      <s1 title="General information">
        <ul>
          <li>
            Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concepts 
            of component-based web development and separation of concerns, ensuring 
            that people can interact and collaborate on a project without stepping 
            on each other toes.
          </li>
          <li>
            Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of <strong>component
pipelines</strong>, 
            each component on the pipeline specializing on a particular operation 
            (usual pipeline uses a Generator, Transformers and a Serializer). This 
            makes it possible to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions, 
            hooking together components into pipelines without requiring programming.
          </li>
          <li>
            <strong>Advanced Control Flow</strong>: continuation-based page flow
hides 
            the complexity of request/response processing and is cleanly separated from 
            the view and data components.
          </li>
          <li>
            Cocoon is open source software (based on the 
            <link href="license.html">Apache Software License</link>).
          </li>
          <li>
            Cocoon doesn't duplicate efforts but tightly integrates many technologies.
          </li>
          <li>
            Cocoon is in use at many live sites and on many company networks.
          </li>
          <li>
            Cocoon has a strong community, with many active developers and more 
            than <link href="who.html">15 active committers</link>!
          </li>
          <li>
            here is free support on our <link href="mail-lists.html">mailing lists</link>

            and commercial support is available from various companies and consultants.
          </li>
          <li>
            There are many Cocoon sessions at different conferences:
