It's rather the first one. MyYahoo is very nice, but displaying
different components is not enough. Our customers are not the users, the
users are our customer's customers. The customers link from their pages
to our service's pages, but they want out service to have the same
appearance as their own website. Therefore the view must be able to
imitate any possible layout out there. I think it requires a very
sophisticated framework, that's why I am so skeptical if anything can do it.

Thank you very much for the link, I will take a look at it right now.

Thanks for the fast reply!
