Oh, yes..

Cocoon goes through each page (starting with index.html), and after
rendering it, extracts all the links to other pages, and renders them.
If no other pages reference compliance.pdf, it won't be rendered.

I suggest you add a <a href="compliance.pdf"> link to the output of your
compliance2html.xsl stylesheet.

Btw, you can debug what links a page has by typing 'forrest run', and
then requesting http://localhost:8888/compliance.html?cocoon-view=links
