[Webtest] webtest reports (was: memory allocation)

I'd like to semi-hijack this message thread to ask how you generate
the nice HTML report. I'm not a complete newbie to webtest, but, I
have been learning as I go and I haven't figured how to produce a nice
report like that from the test summary XML report generated for a
given webtest test run yet. Is this documented on the webtest site
somewhere? Did you use this report task documented on the webtest


If that was not the way you generated the report, please point me in
the right direction. I'm a big fan of webtest and the only missing
piece right now is generating a nice HTML report of the results
similar to what I can do for JUnit tests as part of my Ant build

Thanks, Van
