Amazing perfomance! I never thought that such a good response time is
possible for information site based on Cocoon. Really glad to see this.

Would you share your experience a little? Are you using content aggregation,
XInclude/CInclude? Are you using typical pipelines for page generation:
[XSP->]XML->XSLT or maybe some other generators/transformers, JSP, PHP?

Is it planned to internationalize the site (make it multi-lingual)?

FYI, there is a minor defect on this page:
there are two rows of numbers (1 | 2 | 3 | 4 etc.)
