Great to hear!

So which tools do you use? Do you have a script that converts ZigZag
structures to some kind of Web data, or do you just use ZZ for
outlining/structuring? Do you use Perl ZigZag, GZigZag or XML/XSLT
ZigZag (Les Carr's version)?

I still have code around somewhere for a GZigZag module that converts a
very specific GZigZag structure to a set of HTML files, but its neither
flexible nor documented at the moment. However, if anybody would like to
do something along those lines with GZZ, I'd be happy to dig it up and
explain what it does-- it might be useful as a starting point. (Then
again, it may be not...)
