Thank you very much for your advices. The <x:parse> tag is used to parse an 
document into a data structure that can then be processed by the XPath engine. 
How can I use <x:out>, <x:if>, etc without using the <x:parse>? One method
think is parsing XML document into a DOM document at back-end, and displaying 
the data in JSP page using xml tags. Coulf you tell me how JSTL get the DOM 
document? Can I simply use <c:set> to set the DOM document to a variable?

Thanks again!
