xml server side
Brian, it's not clear what environment you want to run your server-side code
in. If you can't use ASP, what can you use? The two common platforms for
server-side logic (ignoring raw CGI) are ASP with JavaScript, or Java
servlets and/or JSP pages. You've made two statements: you want to work
within the confines of simple .html pages, and you want to render the XML
server-side. I don't think you can do both!
