Thanks for the reference, I will take a look into this.  I was
trying to avoid writing code to do any of the client side
stuff.  I am simply trying to allow client-side users to define
how they want to view stuff.

Hmm, this seems clunky.

This is not possible because my server side is a very tiny
web server running on an embedded system.  The server is barely
HTTP 1.x compliant and has no XML capabilities available.  The
pages are being generate by hand coded response objects that
generate XML compliant pages.
