We currently imagine having a web-based wizard as an addition, which 
will make it possible to "enrich" the HTML template with custom tags 
through a click-and-point interface.

Behind the scenes, the plan currently is that the outcome of this 
"mapping tool" is just a regular template file, which is then parsed by 
the parser, etc.

 From my side, I do not want to code my templates in XSLT - that's a 
powerful language, but hard to gasp for most people and really a 
different paradigm than most of the standard ways.

And, besides, the language is really verbose - so you sometimes need 
lots of code for simple things.

Greets from Dresden,
