In an architecture in which the browser-based client is standard HTML/HTTP (can't count on IE5 or any browser based XML processing) and the server-side is Servlet/JSP/EJB, which process or container should be assigned the task of converting an EJB or Servlet generated XML reply to HTML for response back to the client?

The Servlet/JSP tier is somewhat tied to User interface processing. So any XML returned from the EJB Container should be processed by the Controller Servlet and transformed via a Bean and subsequently a view generated via JSP.
