Can't do. The server has PHP and Zeus, there is a zero chance of Apache. 
Zeus though is an almost a replica of Apache, aside from virtual 
hosting. There is a zero chance of anything else running on the cluster 
of machines.

Interesting...if I could use php in a command shell like what is 
possible for perl, bash, python, or tcl/tk, this might be ok. Out of 
curiosity, I wonder what XML/XSLT abilities python has? And does anyone 
here use stand alone dedicated XML/XSLT programs (e.g., maybe 
Xerces/Xalan work on command line in some way, I've only seen it as a 
C++ or Java API)?
