With Thorstens help the voice plugin is now views enabled.

The next step is to create a contract that will generate your voiceXML 
information and embed it within the view of the page.

If my understanding is correct and this info should go into the head you 
will need to create a contract like the siteinfo-meta contract [1] that 
adds content to the head. If I have this wrong and it is supposed to go 
in the body then you will find plenty of example contracts for this.

Then you will need to add this contract to the 
src/documentation/content/xdoc/voice.fv file (you can see how by looking 
at the siteinfo-meta contract which is used in there).

Unfortunately our docs for this part of Forrest are thin on the ground 
since it is very new and evolving as we speak. THere are some docs about 
creating a contract at [2]

Be sure to ask questions, we will help out.

As a starting hint your stylesheet, that currently creates the msmxl 
page will go into your contract.
