Thanks for the endless clarifications :)

I _think_ I've already solved this problem in CGI::XMLForm, a Perl
module on CPAN (although we could be talking at complete cross
purposes). What I do is encode my CGI variable names in an XPath-like
format. The CGI on the server can then generate XML from the form
variables, and you can then do your XSL or whatever on that XML. Does
that sound like what you want to do?
