'Different views of the same information' is applicable here. We're 
writing some 'avatar generation' software where users can make their own 
avatars. In the first instance the avatars will be 2D, with the later 
possibility of 3D and VRML avatars. The obvious choice is to have an XML 
based avatar description with can then be viewed via either 2D or VRML 
rendering depending on which XSL is used. 

Is anyone doing anything similar?
