	We also would like to create a WYSIWYG editing tool, but for now this
is way too costly, because you would need a lot of man hours to
implement:
	- custom DHTML editor (to edit XSLs)
	- XSL template canonizer (to detect XSL editing and to convert them in
to stylesheets)

	So you are saying that the developers have a simple task when it comes
to developing web applications? I don't think so. We had a 4 members
team to work on a pretty impressive Cocoon project.
	It was EXTREMELY hard to do the job (we have finally lost the project
from other reasons anyway), because we had no IDE (could you tell me an
IDE that knows to edit PXP files in an intelligent way?), no debugging
(I've heard JBuilder knows Cocoon 1, but I've never played with it), no
easy way of loading the PXP output (basically we were editing in
Ultraedit and testing in the XML viewer of Internet Explorer).
	It was a very unpleasant experience, and I would like to know where are
those tools, because it might help us a lot ...

	Can you write a list?

	Could you be more specific on that?
