The Image Markup Tool has XSLT rendering code for <facsimile>, although
it's fairly simple. The biggest problem here is that it's very difficult
to write a general transformation that will handle creating a functional
web page from any of the range of types of image that might be included.
A project may have a single page-image with a sufficiently small number
of zones on it such that it can be embedded directly in a single web
page, or it may consist of 300 images and require a paging mechanism;
the page images may already be sized appropriately for use on the web,
or they may be enormous, and in a format such as TIFF that may not be
supported by browsers; and it's by no means clear what should be done
with links between <zone>s or <surface>s and elements in <text>. The
IMT, as part of its transformation process, creates a version of the
image at a suitable size for a web page, but this is obviously not done
in the XSLT transformation itself.
So I think this might be a case where "rolling your own" is the only
