XML has quickly become the new data structure standard for everything from database access to cross-platform computing. XML is typically considered to be a vehicle for data exchange, dynamic data presentation, and data storage. However, the potential of XML far surpasses those limited applications.

My question, however, has more to do with the "look and feel" of the finished product. We want to be able to integrate our 'portal' easily into the client's websites and have it look as seamless as possible. Obviously, placements of logos, etc. -- but also colors, fonts, etc.
Client sites tend to be simplistic in design. We envision the customer placing a link to our site from theirs, and our site will be running on IIS on their server. At least that's the plan.
The goal right now would be to make as much of this "parameter driven" as possible, so that a lot of the install can be accomplished through some simple settings, isolated in one or two files such that at installation time we can tweak those settings and be up-and-running in a short period of time with a site that integrates reasonably well with the customer's.
But I'm uncertain as to whether there is a better approach. Obviously, we could try to redes
