Funny you should say that. I have spent the last three or four months building GUIs over an XML message (using a proprietary, XForms-ish language), and it has been painful. One of the conclusions I have passed on to the powers that be is that it might be a lot easier not to bind directly to the message structure, but to have some intermediary structure.

Its just more transformation supporting transformation, I suppose!

All the best
