I dont see how building the report in different ways has ANYTHING to do
with displaying it???  I see it as report server hands back finished
file/stream of PS,PDF, HTML, XML etc... If you wanted to have client do
rendering it would take the XML file and build its own document
(PAINFUL).  Which is why it would be better to have a tool like jade
build a PS or PDF and return that.
