Jeff, etall,

Sure, it can be done through a servlet.

But the scenario I am trying to solve is:
1. Create a simple XML file with no styling:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <Book language="german">
  <Book language="eng">
2. Opening this file with a CSS only browser (aka Netscape6)
    the output is
    all in one single line.

In pure HTML and CSS speak, this is the RIGHT way - strip all tags you are
aware off. But ain't useful or usable.

Using XSLT, one could create a HTML page off line and then present a view
much like what IE5 has builtin (the XML tree view). But that needs to be
explicitly done for each XML file - not really an option. Note that there
is no
webserver in play, it's just opening a local file.
