Could you try running 'forrest -v' (verbose) and paste the result?  That
should print the actual error.

Out the box, all the Forrest files should be in ASCII.  I think that by
default, the XML processor will assume UTF-8 encoding, so out-the-box
Forrest files should work.

If your XML files and DTDs are using EBCDIC, make sure they all have a
correct XML declaration at the beginning, e.g. <?xml version="1.0"
