I like jhalfs more. I never had got the nALFS thing work proper (which maybe 
my fault) but jhalfs worked for me right out of the box, even for ppc. And, 
when fooling around with an own version of a book (for instance, the official 
ones are a bit to far behind the newest versions or something like that) I 
simply run jhalfs against this book without the need to maintain another set 
of XMLs. For me, a big plus to jhalfs.

Well generating those XMLs would reduce the need to maintain separate sets of 
XMLs.  But this would not bring me too much benefits.
