They are probably not defined in src/targets/project.xtarget

Not sure what you mean here ... the final HTML that is produced?
If so yes, we need to spend time to be sure that most stuff is
properly handled. We can cope with minor glitches later.

They are hard-coded in Forrest's solitary
I recall someone suggesting creating snippet *.xtarget
fragments for each project. Job still to do.

This is an interesting issue. I thought that each project
was going to provide their own skin, perhaps based on the
forrest-site/bert skin. I have never been clear on this
aspect ... what is Forrest, how broadly is its look-and-feel
to be applied.

We never did need relative paths for systemIdentifiers. The
equally excellent catalog entity resolver in Cocoon and Forrest
took care of it. However some people liked the belt-and-braces
for impoverished xml tools. I prefer to rely on an entity resolver.
These are XML Framework projects after all. Great to hear that
Ant is starting to use one too.

Many thanks. There is plenty for us to go on with.
