Let's rock.

XML comes to help you from hell:

Autoresponse: You can use the worder <x> tags from jstl, this way:

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8" %>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

<%@page import="org.opencms.jsp.*, org.opencms.file.*" %>

<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="/WEB-INF/c.tld" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="x" uri="/WEB-INF/x.tld" %>
<%@ page import="org.opencms.jsp.*" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="cmstag" uri="http://www.opencms.org/taglib/cms" %>


CmsJspActionElement cms = new CmsJspActionElement(pageContext, request,

String uri = request.getParameter("resource");
String lang = "en";

CmsFile file = cms.getCmsObject().readFile(uri);
// note that this doesn't handle charsets
byte[] content = file.getContents();
String result = new String(content);
pageContext.setAttribute("xml", result);

<c:set var="xsl">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:for-each select="//node()[@language='<%=lang%>']//yyy">
      name=<xsl:value-of select="name"/>
      description=<xsl:value-of select="description/content"/>

<x:transform xml="${xml}" xslt="${xsl}" />

PD: One question: is this more or less efficient than cmstag:contentshow ???
