I've just started trying to use Ant to get some Docbook XSL processed via
Saxon 6. Previously I've been doing it using batch files, and could
successfully sun Saxon 6.5 with the catalog resolver, and get the results I

However, I seem to be having some problems getitng it to work in ant.
Really I'm looking for a simple example of an ant <xslt> task showing the
reference to the Saxon and resolver jars, and the catalog manager folder (or
its .properties file).

When I try doing it by calling Saxon from a <java> task I get a message about
it not understanding the -x option, so I thought I'd stick with the <xslt>
task as it is more specific.
