Thanks, Ross.

I have not been running the webapp.  On this suggestion I did forrest
run and the XML was not there.  If it's transformed to HTML within the
pipeline, would it still be there?

Great - I'll use the webapp from now on so I can see that info.  I've
made progress - now I get the aggregated document in HTML but it is
not skinned.  This is my pipeline (as it begins to look more and more
like the main forrest sitemap.xmap):

      <map:match pattern="**/*projects.html">
        <map:aggregate element="document">
          <map:part src="cocoon:/header" element="header"/>
          <map:part src="cocoon:/projinfo" element="section"/>
        <map:transform type="idgen"/>
        <map:transform type="xinclude"/>
        <map:transform type="linkrewriter" src="cocoon:/{1}linkmap-{2}.html"/>
        <map:transform type="log">
          <map:parameter name="logfile" value="d:/temp/logfile.log"/>
          <map:parameter name="append" value="no"/>

        <map:serialize type="html"/>
        <map:call resource="skinit">
          <map:parameter name="type" value="document2html"/>
          <map:parameter name="path" value="{1}{2}.html"/>
          <map:parameter name="notoc" value="false"/>

I think the aggregate is working because the actual source code that
ends up in the HTML is this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><document><header><header>

    <title>Header FILE title title title!</title> 
  </header></header><section id=""><body>
  <section id="This+is+a+section+document+using+the+forrest+dtd.">
    <title>This is a section document using the forrest dtd.</title>
    <p>This is the first paragraph</p>
    <p>This is the secondparagraph</p>
    <p>This is the third paragraph</p>
  <section id="Section+TWO">
    <title>Section TWO</title>

This is a correct aggregation of the two documents (albeit, only in
XML).  Can you see a problem with the XSL transformation that would
prevent this from being skinned to html?

Thanks for your help!  It's a relief to have someone who can help get
ramped up - I have to say there's a bit of a learning curve but it
sure seems like it will be powerful.
