Here at MP3.com, Inc. we use a similar, but less featurefull technique
of generating XML and style based template pages on-the-fly. This is all
written in C and are build-in apache modules that can be called via
mod_perl for dynamic page generation based on i18n,style and/or xml content.

Since our approach was to get performance over features and since XSL:T
and XSL:FO were still in the early stages, we came up with our own small
subset of the XSL feature set that does the job quite nicely.

I would like to work on an open source method of this using XSL with
strict performance in mind. 

I will be speaking about this at ApacheCon 2000, so hopefully I will find
some time after the conference to work on this and have it available
via this XML group.

Just thought, I would bring this up since we were talking about the creation
of a publishing tool for the web using XML/XSL.
