Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] syntax highlighting doesn't work, nor throws errors.

|  -----Original Message-----
|  From: Mike 
|  I'm following the instructions here to make syntax 
|  highlighting work, 
|  are these the wrong instructions to follow?
|  http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/SyntaxHighlighting.html

That documentation is not completely up-to-date, unfortunately.

|  java -cp 
|  "/www/notlive/docbook/docbook-xsl-1.74.3-pre/extensions/saxon
|  \
|  -Dhighlight.source=1 \

Here you pass highlight.source=1 as a Java system property, but that won't
work since it is an XSLT parameter. But you also added it as parameter in
chunkohp.xsl, so that's OK.

|  -Dxslthl.config="file:///www/notlive/docbook/xslthldamnit/hig
|  hlighters/xslthl-config.xml" 
|  \
|  com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet ./text.xml 
|  /www/notlive/docbook/docbook-xsl-1.74.3-pre/html/chunkohp.xsl

There are some changes in DocBook-XSL 1.74.3 that haven't been properly
announced and documented yet. This is what's needed to use the syntax
higlighting extension:

1. Use a processor that works with the extension: Saxon 6 or Xalan-J.
2. Add the latest version of xslthl-2.X.X.jar to your classpath.
3. Set the highlight.source parameter to 1.
4. Import two stylesheet modules, highlighting/common.xsl and either
html/highlight.xsl (for HTML output) or fo/highlight.xsl (for FO output),
into your customization layer. 

So you need to fix item 4.
