I found Windows path names so odd, that I stayed with Java,
which lets me use / as the path separator, hence reducing
the complexity.
Basic advice. Use a setup that has *no* spaces in all the pathnames.

I haven't used xsltproc for XSLT transforms, just Daniels software
for xInclude.

I will try and do a shell script version of my setup, but I doubt
it will be ready in the next day or two.

(Then it's liable to be bash, I doubt I could get a Windows setup
working with the Dos shell!)
