You haven't described why this is a better way. To me, sending the
template document to the server is a waste of effort and bandwidth. You
could ask the server for the *values* and it could send you XML that you
would combine with your template on the client side using XSLT. Using
this strategy you do not even have to build a template document and you
don't have to send it to the server. All of your templating logic lives
in the XSLT and all of your server-side data is URL-addressable.
