The $<$rules$>$-Language

Since the rules configuration file is responsible for the definition of transformation-rules, this language offers possibilities to import or define stylesheets implemented in transformation-languages such as XSL or XQuery. In addition, a rule can contain instructions for modifying the HTTP-header of the web server's response before delivering it to the client. Figure 2.22 shows the general structure of the rules-language.
