I'll get the latest forrest from svn. Thanks!

ok. I was confused, because you said apply this patch and upgrade to  
the svn version... as you indicate, xml-fop uses cvs, and forrest uses  
svn... All these projects make it confusing to me to know what to fix

Nope. I've practically given up on the xml-fop xdocs/*.xml (and subdir  
*.xml files). My plan (which may be a bad plan!) was to start from the file referenced in this POST[1] (link [2] from that  

Obviously, I would rather work with the xml-fop cvs files, but Dave  
Brondsema's instructions dealt with link [2] from that post. I suppose  
that those instructions might be able to work from xml-fop cvs, though.  
If so (or I could get new instructions which work with xml-fop cvs),  
that would be great and would save me a step or two!

Oh what a tangled web we weave... when we try and figure out all this  
stuff and it takes months to learn!
