Is that because you want to let people see the horrible interim method
of reporting the errors? That was only meant as an interim method,
whilst I was setting up the initial rules. What we need is a proper
ant task for validating (the xslt method for extracting the schematron
rules is fine, but using basic-schematron to do the validation is a
hopeless hack - in particular, it will not work on windows, as it
issues ls commands(!)).

I noticed that there is some sort of Schematron Validation  component
- can we use that, or does it require Cocoon to be up and running?
In any case, It should be useful for runtime validation of re-loaded

Maybe, I don't know. All I know is it wasn't working until I emptied
by java endorsed lib, and put saxon 7 in there instead.
There is also a comment in the stylesheet that says it's a bug in
xalan that causes the error, and specifically mentions saxon is ok. It
doesn't mention xsltc (at least, I don't remember it).
