So are we. As I said, only Gecko based browser can handle it, and I
don't believe it's good to narrow the users range like this.

Ok, I'll try to set up mod_transform with the XSLT Cache tonight on my
local mod_mbox installation and see how all this stuff works.

According to me, XML+XSLT is the most evolutive solution. Except from
the wanted AJAX stuff, we could also easily build advanced XUL
applications on top of this XML output (just an idea, though).
