I expected that.

It is in our version of that old DTD.

Ah, drat. The proper document type declaration with
a Public Identifier is probably needed. Try it as described
below by adding one Batik xdoc to a fresh seed site
and set its Public Identifier.
<!DOCTYPE document PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.0//EN" "document-v10.dtd">
That will cause it to use Forrest's own DTDs.
Try it in 'forrest run' or set the validation
off in file.

Probably depends on how you referenced that from
your source files. See examples in 'forrest seed'.

Don't know, maybe due to the above issues.
What happens if you leave some documents from
the 'forrest seed site'? Do they have their
menus? You are probably better to start with a
fresh seed site and just add one of the old
Batik documents, i.e. don't change too much at
one time.

Does your site.xml have a "<site>" element?
It is missing in your snippet above.

Two xml declarations and document type declarations
or is that a typo in your email?

Also, why look at build/site/index.xml instead
of src/documentation/content/xdocs/index.xml
