It's not strictly necessary to use your own CatalogManager.properties
when using the xslt task: I can no longer remember why I did that.

I typically take the easy way out and put both saxon.jar (or saxon8.jar,
or now saxon9.jar) and resolver.jar in Ant's lib directory so Ant can
find them without my having to set a classpath.

Looking at the Saxon 8.9 source code [1], the feature key to enable
XInclude processing is:


So, the (untested) way to do XInclude processing while letting Ant
handle catalogs would be:

  <target name="convert.single" depends="init">
    <xslt style="${stylesheet}"
      <factory name="net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl">
        <attribute name="http://saxon.sf.net/feature/xinclude-aware";
      <xmlcatalog refid="catalog"/>

(It's been a while since I've set a boolean TransformerFactory attribute
