Not quite sure what you want - JXPath site doesn't look that out of
line with what lang/io look like. You only have a maven1 build ATM -
if you're happy to stick with that then the file that controls the
menu is xdocs/navigation.xml - all the other xml files in the xdocs
directory get converted to html pages - so if you create a
xdocs/foo.xml - it will generate a foo.html page and you can add menu
reference to foo.html in your navigation.xml to put a link on the

If you want to use maven2 - then you need some other bits (which I'm
happy to help with if you want).

Perhaps you could be more specific about what your're trying to achieve though.
