Cocoon and Dynamic HTML

I will admit up front that I am pretty ignorant concerning XML and related technologies. I have been looking at Cocoon lately although I haven't tried implementing it yet.
My question: Is Cocoon the best way to go with implementing a web application involving dynamic xml data and serving it up as html, should I hit the Xerxes and Xalan parsers myself instead of handing data off to Cocoon, or is there some other way I should be doing this. I should say up from that I like the idea of using XSLT, but I guess this isn't a requirement. Are there any good articles or tutorials on the web showing any examples?
I have read the Cocoon documents but it isn't really helping me out much, and I didn't quite understand where they were going with writing custom Producers, or how to implement them with dynamic data since they aren't servlets.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
