Yeah, I guess jhat was a bad example. I just meant that jhat doesn't
include its own client... you provide your own (web browser).

If your data is hierarchical, it sounds like it would be natural to
express it in XML. It's fairly easy to write an XSL stylesheet that can
convert that into something that can expand/collapse with clicks, etc.

I wouldn't recommend JSON for large amounts of data, especially when
it's structured and nested in the way you have described. On the other
hand, XML is typically very verbose.
