yes, that's obviously misleading. But I'm not related to this page. After the mention on this list last week I only asked them to be listed on Cocoon's Livesites page and Jim Costello sent me this mail below. I added the link in the CVS and forwarded this mail, especially because of the impressive figures. Now the report: It's the typical Cocoon 1.x handling using processing instructions. But I don't know if they wrote their own component handling processing instructions or if the report is outdated or simlpy wrong. The X-Cocoon header clearly states that they use Cocoon 2.0.4, but he also wrote (in the mail below) that they still have Cocoon 1.x in use for a part of their homepage. I'm cc-ing Jim Costello, so he can read and clarify your objections.

I was browsing the white paper referred to; in http://www.ctg.albany.edu/publications/reports/xml?chapter=9 it mentions that XML files are "connected" to XSL files by placing links to the stylesheets at the top of the XML files. It then goes on to say:
"This significantly simplifies content management because it enables you to make changes to only one content file and make no changes to the stylesheets because the content is totally separated from the presentation.
Figure 8 illustrates how these XML/XSL transformations occur within the Cocoon publishing framework. "
This is a little misleading and underplays the true value added by Cocoon in completely separating content from presentation - the "connections" happen in the sitemap; there is no need to specify stylesheets in your XML files; as soon as you do this you are implicitly mixing content and presentation.
If you are able, I think some changes would help clarify the situation.
