as attachments a prototype of the xsl template can be found.
The idea is quite simple. The form data coming to clients browser is 
transformed with an xsl stylesheet to a DOM fragment and than inserted 
in the page DOM. The whole thing is encapsulated in a XBL element.

By the way, Firefow2.0 will have a new templating implemented, perhaps 
worthwhile to check this as well.
