So if I'm understanding you correctly...

Let's say this is my page with variables, as an end-user: (the things that
look like "aprs()" functions are the variables)

http://home.n8qq.com/aprs

And I then feed that url and my callsign to this script, as you describe:

http://xml.n8qq.com/replace/index.cgi?call=n8qq&url=http://home.n8qq.com/apr
s

...and the variables are replaced.  Is that the sort of thing you had in
mind?

These variables look more like functions with arguments than variables -
maybe they should be something embedded in an html comment, like <!--aprs
position latitude degrees-->.  Not sure what would be best in that regard.
(?)

The variables correspond directly to the xml hierarchy.  So that
aprs(position latitude degrees) gets you
<position><latitude><degrees>foo</degrees></latitude></position>.

I'm having trouble getting off the digest and back on the regular list
(can't get a password), so please copy me directly on any replies for the
moment, and I'll check the archives periodically, too.
