Thanks for the offer of help. As with FOP, I'm sure there are always
people ready to respond. I guess I was just too embarassed to ask. :-)

I want to update the FOP web site to fix the breadcrumb problem, and to
add Whole Site PDF. I do not get errors using the most current version
from the following "snapshot" link (HEAD branch), but the result (on my
system) is always "MyProj":

I get errors stating 'site.xml is not valid'. Heh... actually, I don't
think the file exists, as they're using sitemap.xmap instead. Anyway, I
have problems generating the FOP web site from this src (Maintenance
branch, which I'm using mainly for testing Forrest):

I've followed the instructions here, (result is shown above):

At this point, I'd like to be able to build locally, the current FOP web
site. Once there, I'd like to fix the problems indicated above.

Thanks in advance for your help!
