The Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) website is the primary resource for users of the CIAO software package. Several hundred pages of content are written in XML, allowing for a baseline set of text from which many types of documentation may be created. Development and production (i.e., public) HTML versions of the site are generated from the XML via conversion scripts and XSL stylesheets. We present an overview of the back-end of the CIAO website, including custom markup tags, stylesheets, and CSS. The success of the project led to the use of this system in maintaining five websites at the Chandra X-ray Center (CXC).
