Hi Ana,
	This is a common question - (PeterF - is it on the FAQ?). Because you (or
anyone) can design any elements in XML you like there cannot be a standard
way of converting XML to HTML. For example:
	<FOO> This is a <BAR/> I found yesterday</FOO>
What does FOO mean? Should you set it as a section? What is a BAR?

	The most common approach will be to design a stylesheet (XSL) which
describes how FOO and BAR should be rendered. This stylesheet can drive an
HTML-aware XSL processor to output HTML. Different stylesheets can give
different results.
