I don't know much about Anakia either. From what i have
seen from using this one, it is very straight-forward.

Also their is Geir's experiment at incubator/site
to play with and tweak output stylesheets and stuff.

to the svn checkout of incubator. I don't think that
it is worth it.

My suggestion is for people to concentrate on content
and just one or two of us do manual generation from

Fantastic. I just watch the incubator-cvs list,
and do it whenever i can.
