The CMS can be setup to build XML files from XSLT files with only some slight efforts with

Here are eccn / exports from the lib/ for

sub exports {
    my %args = @_;
    my $template = "content$args{path}";
    $args{breadcrumbs} = ASF::View::breadcrumbs($args{path});

    my $page_path = $template;
    $page_path =~ s/\.[^.]+$/.page/;
    if (-d $page_path) {
        for my $f (grep -f, glob "$page_path/*.mdtext") {
            $f =~ m!/([^/]+)\.mdtext$! or die "Bad filename: $f\n";
            $args{$1} = {};
            read_text_file $f, $args{$1};
        $args{table} = `xsltproc $page_path/eccnmatrix.xsl $page_path/eccnmatrix.xml`;


    return Template($template)->render(\%args), html => \%args;

and the lib/

    [qr!^/licenses/exports/index\.html$!, exports => {} ],

Done properly we can drop the NL files in a consistent area. Interesting...

Ideally all that should be changed is the XML and then the site is properly rebuilt.

What will this xlstproc call look like if there are two XML files - one for columns and the
other for data?
