I don't believe that anybody suggested that Xalan use Anakia.

There are several threads going on here.  IMHO:

1) Stylebook can be configured to use virtually any layout desired, but the
one chosen by the XML project is too graphics heavy.

2) Stylebook itself is not exactly maintained (Cocoon2 has been threatening
to replace it for ever)

3) The process for actually generating the site using stylebook is
cumbersome at best.  I find that I get a wierd error which mysteriously
goes away if I delete a specific cvs directory.  And the process of knowing
what generated files to check in is very error prone.

For reference, the jakarta policy, loosely paraphrased, is to allow each
subproject autonomy in determing HOW they generate their web site as long
as they conform to the look and feel of Jakarta.  That would be fine to me,
except for #1 above.

What we need is a complete overhaul, top to bottom.  Meanwhile, telling new
subprojects that they must use stylebook and the current look and feel
seems counterproductive to me.  And I can tell you that xerces2 and axis
are completely out of spec...
