hi ines

if your people never have seen an html
then they will produce very simple html output

paragraphs, with or without titles, images , bulets
and  tables (nothing more is needed im most cases)

so u can design a simple collection of elements and a xsd schema that
describe those element and there attributes

then you can give an xml editor and this schema to those people
this is an easy way to make people create xml files in the way u want


then u have to create a "machine" that will run unter cocoon who will be
the presentation layer for this xml files


there is a project we work on and soon will be free for download that
make exactly what u want. (this not final for the moment but if you are
familiar with xml.xsl.javascript i thing that u can use it)

and all this under cocoon

contact me direct if you want more informations
