for now. Everything else that needs doing requires more XSL knowledge 
than I have ;)

that's what I thought as well, so I added those as "resources" as well. 
That didn't work. Simply replacing the entity references with the 
content of the .mod files does work properly. Docs are sparse. One could 
consider contacting the intellij team of course to get them to figure it 
out :D

hehehe. Tried and failed. There is a lot in the xml world I know only a 
little about. Various tools always seem to sprout various vague errors 
(File not found: index.htmlnull, upgrade a library, and it works. Why on 
earth is that?! How does one debug xsl?). I get frustrated all the time!

I am an emacs guy myself ;)
