Subject: Re: Problems with XInclude and images


thanks for your replies. But I could solve the problem: I used an 
XIncluder Ant-Task which didn't set the "xml:base" attributes correctly. 
When using XIncludes in files which were already XIncluded it set the 
"xml:base" attribute - even though those files were in the same 
directory. Now I am using xmlint and now everything is working fine.

Is there an example how to use the XSLT-Ant task in such a way that it 
is resolving the XIncludes?

Thanks for your replies.
