I'd prefer to process the xml directly, because the html may change and the 
xml contains the semantics. Further, I'm quite sure, that we won't use that 
perl script directly (but depends on its complexity ;-) and there may be 
licensing problems, we cannot distribute GPL licensed code), so don't take 
too much time on this. But it may be helpful to look, how the contents of 
the jar file is generated (is there a spec somewhere tom compare with?). If 
the thout format is text based, we can use xslt only for generation. 
zipping the jar can be done by ant.

I'm willing to investigate some time to help to integrate the stuff in our 
build system.

Das, was ich nicht kenne, spielt stückzahlmäßig *keine* Rolle.
