Btw, the sitemap->skin stylesheets changed last week, from {dir} and
{resources} to a single {path}.  This had the effect of fubar'ing
everyone's custom sitemaps or custom skins (unless both were overridden),
and sparked the thread about backwards-compat.

Btw, there's a section in your-project.html about adding SVG.

I gather you don't have a custom skin, so changing the sitemap was the
only change..?  Did you delete the whole build/ directory after changing
the sitemap?  I suspect the build process caches bad stuff in build/tmp
or somewhere.  Also, the build apparently no longer overwrites
build/site/.  I'm not sure exactly how that works.

Have a look at build/tmp/context/WEB-INF/logs/error.log. It should
contain useful stuff.
