There is more to the Saxon config ... -x and -y options.
See Michael Kay's docs ... excellent stuff.

I use vi text editor from the UNIX command-line, then i
validate my xdocs with OpenSP which has a native catalog
entity resolver. Sometimes i also use ElCel xmlvalid, but prefer
former for its error messages. For big documentation jobs i have a
Win NT sitting in the corner, specifically to run XMeTaL.
