I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "layout systems"... but it sounds
like you may asking about XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), which is an XML
language that describes how information should be arranged on the
page/screen/whatever. You'd use XSLT to represent your document's contents
as an XSLFO document, then use an XSL-FO renderer such as FOP to convert
that into the displayed format.

If I've misunderstood the question, please clarify...
