the "particular taglib" you mention must be designed in such a way to let
you choose the format of the xml fragment it results. see the esql
logicsheet for example - it lets you do anything you want in xsp with its
results, because instead of forcing results on you in a particular way, it
gives you methods to access its results in whatever fashion you like.
