Alternatively, you can easily write a few classes that translate DOM
objects into COS objects.  We have done this in our product.  It took very
few days.   XSLT/XSL-FO is one way to do the transformations using that
methodology.  We did not use it as our target is mobile forms which do not
require very complex layouts.  Most are horizontally centered and
vertically flowed.
