    WBI, at least on the one I installed, uses a dll for something. WBI is not
    without its problems in relation to our project. For the moment, at least
    some of us are developing with it as a means to assist Doug in an
    exploration of the technology.

    In the long run, something along the lines of IBM's DirectDom (weblet) may
    allow us to mangle the document without the use of XSL of other transform
    engine. The Enhydra server appears to allow for the same manipulation of the
    document as DirectDom does, and there is a new initiative called JDom from
    Jason Hunter et al -- I suspect it is to be presented in a new O'Rielly book
    on Java and XML coming soon. In short, the whole idea of transcoding is to
    take the document object model containing some document's information and
    mutate it to suit. XSL does this by using re-write productions (rules).

    I suspect IBM will soon have to have a Linux version, if they don't already.
