Re: xml tables

The bulk of this work would be the getting of the data from the database in
smallish-sized chunks and just getting the one chunk you wanted at a time so
you can set up links to it.  Turning each chunk into xml wouldn't be hard
once you have the rest.  You'd probably want to use xslt to produce html (I
say html because you mentioned "rendering").

I can't tell if you want to produce xml from data that isn't in xml already,
or if you will be handed xml and want to render it.
