Different people at work pronounce Xalan different ways, but no one says it with confidence. I have heard it said "zalan", "x-alan", and "exzalan". Does any one know how it "should" be said? I know it is not important, but it would be nice to know.

My DataChannel XML instructor pronounced it "zalan" with confidence.

Sounds kind of like a laxative or a sleeping pill, don't you think?
