I see that it actually does exist in my directory now (as mentioned in  
a previous post, I started from a fresh /forrest seed/ last week). I  
don't think recall it being there before.

Thanks. I've made the modifications indicated to the file (I no longer get the error!). Here's the  
only line from that file that is not commented out:


I also created the src/documentation/resources/schema/catalog.xcat file  
with these contents:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE catalog PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog  
<!-- OASIS XML Catalog for W3C stuff like XHTML and SVG -->
<catalog xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:entity:xmlns:xml:catalog"

<!-- Extensible HTML 1.0 -->
<public publicId="-//APACHE//DTD Compliance V1.0//EN"


I checked to ensure that this file exists (it always has):


(I don't think xml-fop's site needs anything else in  

In any case, my CRITICAL problem is that the Compliance Page renders no  
content (other than the site structure, nav links, etc.).

As I indicated in Tuesday's message[1] I still have problems with the  
svg & fo transformations. However, at this point I am content to just  
follow the instructions for "Images"[2] (which I assume follows the  
same general pattern as the previous instructions for "RAW" files--is  
this a correct assumption?) and have the files copied over as RAW  
files. It'll probably cut down on run time anyway, not to have to  
generate those files every time a /forrest/ run is done.
