Yes and no - it is OK, but the output isn't so grand.  What you would
probably want to do is pass in a CocoonServletResponse so it doesn't
output, and handle things that way, i.e. not let it send all that nasty
HTML to the screen... Besides, I don't believe Cocoon adds <html> and
those type of tags automatically, does it?  If you send it HTML starting
with <TABLE> and ending with </TABLE> it should just process that
portion of a document, right?  Or am I missing that it adds in HTML
