Glenn Fleishman has a story about how the Google appliance does XML and other goodies...
the templates can be built as XSLT documents, allowing the use of structured XML template generators for managing the output style. You can also take the raw XML output and work with it, too, which opens up a wide array of possibilities of combining Google's search output with other services. Yum!

Cross-organizational Use of Networked Information Resources

As institutions implement networked information strategies which call for sharing and licensing access to information resources in the networked environment, authentication and access management have emerged as major issues which threaten to impede progress. While considerable work has been done over the last two decades on authentication within institutions and, more recently, in support of consumer-oriented electronic commerce on the Internet, a series of new technical and policy issues emerge in the cross-organizational authentication and access management context.
Ça date un peu mais ca donne un excellent contexte sur le sujet.
