I'm trying to stretch the definition of "holiday season" over the weekend as an excuse for hacking up an xBack server for .NET that works with intermittently-connected Radio clients (the cool thing about Radio Userland is that it runs locally on your work machine and uploads static HTML pages to your generic server). Writing the server is easy enough (TrackBack uses REST, PingBack uses a single XML-RPC verb) but I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate the results into Radio Userland. I can't quite figure out what to do: I'm thinking I have to use a server-side include to combine the Radio Userland-generated HTML with the Trackback server data. Any other thoughts on how to transform:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<Title>Response to target</Title>
<Excerpt>I disagree with target...</Excerpt>
<BlogName>Referer's Blog</BlogName>

into HTML inside of Radio's production of target.html?
