If the language is callable from Java, it should be possible to write a
generator to do this.  One of the building blocks could be the Bean
Scripting Framework
(http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/bsf/).

I did write a generator to do this with Cocoon 2, but that code base has
been undergoing rapid development.  Now that it appears to be quieting down,
I need to go back and ensure that this still works.

Depends on the browser.  See http://www.xslt.com/resources_browsers.htm for
more details.

I'm not sure, but I think that this would depend on the particular server
application.

By the way, I think a better place to ask these questions might be one of
the cocoon mailing lists.
