Not finalised yet, but the way that I'm planning for our report-writer to
output data is using DTD's, XML and XSL as per the current standard(s). I
don't want to futz around with namespaces and I'm more interested in a
single document being wholly self-sufficient.

I'm treating XML and XSL as being reasonably well-defined meta protocols
that we can use right now. If other tools remain compliant all well and
good. I've not yet decided if XML-Data is worth pursuing for schema
description - I'd like to hear what Oracle et al have intended along those
lines before believing in it as a standard. Just because Microsoft are
supposedly backing it doesn't fill me with confidence (the games they play
with RTF alone have wasted much of my time).
