XML File editing from HTML forms.

Request Generator

Followed by XSLT StyleSheet to set up XInclude tags

Xinclude the editable content

XSLT StyleSheet modifies the XIncluded content, using the output of the
request generator.

This content is then passed on to a "FileResourceWriterTransformer", which
(either reacting to a namespace in the content or has been told which tag)
outputs that content as a file on disk.

Response prepared for user

I need my Transformer to Serialise the Sax Events "between" it's trigger
tags, to a File, provided a (pseudo protocol) URL.

Serialisers can be set up in different ways, so I thought it would be good
to allow the SItemap author to be able to tell the Transformer to use a
Serialiser already setup in the SiteMap.

Does that make any more sense ;)    ?
