Well, I'm no Xerces expert. Does Xerces list support for XInclude?
Maybe it supports it, but it's disabled by default!?

If I were you, I'd try a Xerces only test reading an XML document
with XInclude'd files, and dump it on disk, and see if Xerces resolved
the includes. This takes out Ant or the XSL processor of the equation.

Also, search in archives. I remember posts from the past mentioning
adding XInclude support to Ant itself (or something like that).
