I use Apache.  I have Perl scripts that create XML documents.  
Before XSL and CSS were viable, I used Perl to create SGML
files and Panorama and/or Citec MultiDoc to view and link
between documents using HyTime links that were created
from the Perl scripts.

I haven't found any problems with Apache as a Web server
and SGML/XML applications.

I just wish IE 5.0 behaved as well as traditional SGML
browsers.  I haven't done an extensive amount of testing
with IE 5.0 but what I have done I have found many
problems that I am not happy with.

If you want to see Apache and Perl working, I have a sample
available at  The first is
a simple bookorder form that creates an XML document.  The
original version used an XSL stylesheet (first draft).
Now I just attached a CSS stylesheet to it until I get
some free time to create a new XSL style sheet for it.

There is also an XMLized version of the XML/EDI Guidelines
document that is displayed using CSS.
