Coo. Easy question, I like this type ;)

XSP generates an XML document tree, that is, it specifies what
information appears on the page, rather than how that information
looks. JSP pages include the formatting information inline, and
so specify the look and feel of the application as well as its
informational content.

Using XSP and XSLT, I can change the look and feel of an entire
site by editing a couple of <xsl:template>s.

HTH. If you need more, I can womble for *hours* about content
(and OO) abstraction and its many benefits.
