Subject Re: [] Dynamic system with WWH (what we have)

I can only comment on the applet option.
If possible I would suggest that applets are avoided at this point.
Unfortunately they're not quite predictable on windows platform, especially
with all the mess MS intentionally creates. I can't run applets on my
Win98/IE 5.5 browser for a few months now.

However I would opt for pushing xml/xslt to the client, so that the real
time consuming operations are not performed on the server. By the time
forrest is ready for prime time, majority of browser installations will
support xslt.
