Does repository2Html.xsl really generate HTML?  It shouldn't; it should
generate doc-v11 format XML.  If you really want to generate HTML, remove
the 'skinit' call below.

Also, it's probably better to put repository2Html.xsl in
src/documentation/resources/stylesheets/, and then reference it in the
sitemap with 'resources/stylesheets/repository2Html.xsl'

This should be:
                <map:parameter name="path" value="/repository.xml" />

For debugging this kind of problem, there are two tricks:

- Request the intermediate page, eg
  http://localhost:8888/body-repository.xml.  Check that it contains
  valid HTML in a <div class='content'> tag (I think).  Do a 'view
  source' on the result to see if there's any XML.
- If doing the above returns no XML, add a <map:serialize type="xml"/> at
  any point in the body-repository.xml pipe to see output at that point.
  Eg, add it directly after the XSL transform to see if your stylesheet
  works.  Remember to remove it after you're done debugging.
