I'm working with a desktop-like feature which contains "nodes" (icons) located at (x,y) coordinates. The nodes function as a multi-linked list data structure with their links. I'm looking for a little advice on how to lay these suckers out on an html page, which is exported by the software. I've considered trying an xml - xslt approach, but I don't know if the style sheet can help, as the xml offers node positions, but I still need to imbed the html into the style sheet to move the nodes to their respective positions.

Like I mentioned, I'm just looking for ideas or suggestions, as I'm a little puzzled.

Help appreciated in advance
