Sort of. At present I'm running with the default settings.  For
instance below is my pipeline element (which I tacked onto the end of
the other pipeline elements in the main sitemap).

  <!-- added by guyw first try at publishing using Cocoon -->
   <map:match pattern="firsttry">
    <map:generate src="firsttry.xml"/>
    <map:transform src="firsttry.xsl"/>

As you can see I'm at a lower level than even the first tutorial. 

Don't get me wrong, I think the tutorial "How to develop Web
Applications" is well crafted, and if I let my eyes go out of focus so

I'm not reading the detail I can follow its logic.  It's just too
advanced at present.

What I'd really like is to start at the start with the big picture
(and maybe even a big picture) with some theory covering from the time
the client sends its request to the time it receives the final
published document from Cocoon.

And was hoping that such a beginner's resource existed either in the
documentation or in the Wiki.
