Here's some candy: we've built simple sample gateways to the USDA
Plants site and the Simthsonian Mammal Species of the World
site. Server-side perl makes up cgi requests to the site, parses
the returned html and emits XML. Of course, it is a very unstable solution since
changes to the site's html will break it. But we did it because we
experiment with federating heterogeneous XML biodiversity databases.
