How's this?

"Apache Forrest is an XML standards-oriented data, news and 
documentation presentation framework based upon Apache Cocoon, that is 
able to render complete and consistent websites, documents and reports 
by keeping the content separate from the style."

or


"Apache Forrest is a content presentation framework that is able to 
render complete and consistent websites, documents and reports by 
keeping the content separate from the style.

Underneath it leverages Apache Cocoon's ability to operate on xml data 
that can come from diverse sources, like documentation, news, data, etc...
"

IOW

Forrest renders content:
   - consistently
   - without mixing it with style
   - with multiple output formats
   - with added-value presentations

Forrest is:
   - extensible   (plugins)
   - customizable (with property files)
   - embeddable   (in Ant and Maven buildfiles)
