You got lots of answers to the question "How to do Corba-style stuff
by exchanging XML documents", but that isn't really what you asked.

The tags <0>, <1> etc. are not valid XML, because an element name can't
be numeric. You could use _0, _1, etc. but really all you need is
just "<value><component>abc</component><component>efg</component> ...",
with no need to specify an explicit count (XML processors are expected
to be able to count things).

Yes, no problem.

I don't really see how. XSL is for styling XML for display.
