Notes DXL viewer


I have a large number of DXL files created by a third party using DxlExporter. I need to be able to visualize these files for my users. I realize that i can write an agent and use DxlImporter to recreate the item in the inbox and have the user open it, but that is not what I'm looking for.

I need a standalone viewer that actually reads the DXL, interprets it and shows it as something resembling the original e-mail. preferably without Notes being installed on the computer.

Any ideas?

Oh yes, I have ideas, I even started doing something similar about a year ago but everything is still on the drawing board. In theory, you can use the DXL data you have, followed by XSLT and XSL-FO to produce PDF output (using correct transformations and a form layout description). When you're ready, can you share the project on OpenNTF please?
For now you can use Excel (or Symphony Spreadsheet) to view those files:

    Open Excel > Data > XML > Import

Sjef_Bossman : An XSLT transformation to PDF or HTML would work, I was hoping someone already had something instead putting one together myself. Guess I'm goign to have to pull out the XSLT manual.

Mbonaci : Accessing the data is not a problem. What i need is something that represents these XML files as something resembling the original e-mail, or converts then into a format that can be displayed with something (MSG, EML, etc)

After three weeks I believe there is no solution to my question. I've started to to create my own viewer based on the Domino XSD included with notes.
