lenyaxhtml2html.xsl should not be in {project:resources.stylesheets} 
since it will be the same for all documents, it should be in a central 

This work should be in a plugin. If you look at the Daisy plugin (in 
whiteboard) you will see a fairly complete integration of Daisy (another 
Cocoon based CMS) and Forrest.

I'd recomend using that as a base for the Lenya plugin as it has quite a 
few additional features like pre and post filtering and navigation 
inclusion. It is fairly well documented within the plugin.

It's a new one (don't worry if you haven't made it a plugin, either 
Thorsten or I will do that if you don't have the time).
