:: They are tightly related but can be used independantly. (For
:: example, I recently was involved in getting Pyxie working with
:: Python 1.4 on an IBM mainframe using a Java based PYX generator!).
:: The common thread is the PYX notation. Pyxie is a library
:: that is based on manipulating the notation. XMLN and XMLV
:: are two standalone utilities for generating the
:: notation from well-formed and valid (respectively) XML

PYX appears to have some general appeal. In March, Shawn published
an article on Pyxie in xml.com and within a few days, readers had been
spurred to write PYX processors in Perl and Java.
