Is there a moderator on this list?
I've had quite a few 'bounced', and I think I'm properly subscribed.

Peeved, DaveP

Your message  is being returned to  you unprocessed because it  appears to
already been  distributed to the  EAD list. That  is, a message  with
text (but  possibly with different  mail headers) has  been posted to  the
recently, either by you or by someone else. If you have a good reason to
this message  to the  list (for instance  because you have  been notified
of a
hardware failure with  loss of data), please  alter the text of  the message
some way and resend  it to the list. Note that altering  the "Subject:" line
adding blank lines at  the top or bottom of the message  is not sufficient;
should  instead add  a  sentence or  two  at  the top  explaining  why you
resending the  message, so that the  other subscribers understand why  they
getting two copies of the same message.

file 1

<xsl:call-template name="showbox-c02-box-only" select="."/>

the select is redundant, the current context is maintained when
the call-template call is made.

(xt is lax at error reporting)

same with line 1302
<xsl:call-template name="hidebox-c02-box-only" select="."/>

Also note that the

<xsl:apply-templates select=".">

the select is redundant.

Again it is implied, i.e. process all child nodes of the current context.

Otherwise cbs1 OK, produces an empty toc on the given file, is this what is

File cbs2, same issue. all select="." are redundant.

file cbs3,
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""
Requires 'version="1.0"' adding.

The saxon equivalent to xt:document requires
extension-element-prefixes="saxon"      (to remove the saxon ns from output)
and the function call is:

<xsl:template match="preface">
    <saxon:output file="{$dir}\preface.html">
        <html><body bgcolor="#00eeee"><center>
    <a href="{$dir}\preface.html">Preface</a>

for example.

in file 4

<xsl:for-each select="entry">
<td valign="top"><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>

The <xsl:value-of .../> could be replaced more safely with

The operation is that if the content of an element is text, it is added
to the output stream, if it contains markup, then it is processed with
the appropriate templates. See the xslt spec for details, its the
default templates.

Mmmm. Without pouring over the stylesheets and xml example for hours,
I'm getting no output other than the empty frames!

Is that expected?
