Thanks Jens and Berin,
My Java experience is limited to a bit of JSP and taglibs.  Trying to get 
this running will be a good experience and jump to other stuff I'd like 
Cocoon to do.
ImageMagic seems to have circumvented the GIF license stuff because AFAICT 
it can write GIFs too.  The image convertion utility will be a useful 
addition to my Cocoon based CMS.  I almost have a complete browser based 
page editor (IE5.5+) running incl. image support.  I'll check out Xopus as 
soon as it's OSS, but from what I read on the OSS version will 
not implement table support. :-(  I guess there must be a reason them to 
sell the commercial version.
