Clever stylesheet, Frédéric, I love it!! (The colors are awful IMO, but 
that can be changed ;)

I think we should replace the ugly view-source.xsp with your 
stylesheet, the output is so much better. In case you're not familiar 
with this, the src/webapp/samples/docs/samples/slides/view-source.xsp 
is doing a similar job as your stylesheet, except that is a Java 
program hidden inside an XSP page, which constructs a DOM tree and 
walks on it to generate the output.

Frédéric, would you like to pick up the task of refactoring the 
existing src/webapp/samples/sitemap.xmap to use your stylesheet instead 
of view-source.xsp? I'd gladly incorporate the changes, together with 
your stylesheet of course, into Cocoon.

I think some of these duplicates are historic. You're more than welcome 
to point out these duplicates and provide a patch as an alternative.
