No, file: URIs can only specify files in src/documentation/content.  For
example, index.xml could link to its source XML with <link

There is a deeper misunderstanding here that _everyone_ is making :)
which I'll address in another email.

Not currently, but it could be arranged if required.. it currently looks like

    <map:transform type="linklogger">
       <map:parameter name="tofile" value="context:/linkfile.log"/>
       <map:parameter name="schemes" value="file: java: person: info:"/>
       <map:parameter name="exclude-schemes" value="http: https:"/>

Where 'schemes' and 'exclude-schemes' specify which links to log.

Attached is the not-finished-but-working source.
