Thanks for the pointer, Ross.

Yes, you are probably right. Have started to work on the
Doku-Wiki-Grammar but there are more problems to solve (find how the
grammar is selected) and find a way for Forrest to download the pages
right from the Internet.

You are right. A close look at the result of that pipeline shows that it
doesn't. I actually get the html delivered by dokuwiki.

However: If the pipeline isn't executed, how is the content of the
wikipage retrieved? To be sure I uncommented my pipeline.
And indeed, once I remove my pipeline I get an error message "The
requested resource "/cms/cmspage/start.xml" could not be found"
If I uncomment the pipeline again I get my html-result back.

Does that mean that only the retrieval part is executed?
I checked the existence and the validity of the style sheet and both
seem ok.

To be sure I inserted a character into the stylesheet to render it
invalid and bingo I get
this message

"The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup."

which tells me that my stylesheet is found and used.

Now I'm really out of ideas.
