Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] <programlisting linenumbering="numbered"> does not number...

From the link on Saxon plus other information I put together the simplest test case (which sort of works). The command is essentially this (other commands validate the XML with jing and xmllint before calling Saxon):
java \
-Dxslthl.config=${XSLTHL}/highlighters/xslthl-config.xml \
com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet \
-o ${OBJ}/${TITLE}_monolithic.fo \
${OBJ}/${TITLE}_monolithic.xml \
${XSLT}/fo/docbook.xsl \
This does enable line numbering in programlisting tags, and options related to numbering do as expected. However, in attempting to get the syntax highlighting to work (see http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/SyntaxHighlighting.html) nothing I've tried has any effect (test cases were with "bourne" and "ini" files).
The CLASSPATH contains the following files, and no error occurs (for the sake of brevity I'm showing only the relative paths, but the full path is used without error in the actual Makefile):
Since I get no errors, and because the Saxon processing is otherwise working, is there any additional requirement to keep syntax highlighting from failing as if the option did not exist? Is syntax highlighting something which maybe requires the Xalan parser? Is there perhaps something from param.xsl which needs to change and not mentioned in the above URL on syntax highlighting?

Here is the link to the part of Bob’s book that covers the Saxon processor:
I think you can keep the xmllint processing as is (I use it for XInclude processing, too), and just swap in saxon for xsltproc, using Bob’s instructions.
I don’t bother swapping in Xerces (I don’t use any of the features that go beyond what Saxon supports).

I've had some frustrations getting the Java-based processors working and have tried to stick to the xmllint/jing/xsltproc family for that single reason. The Java-based processing answer likely also answers my earlier syntax highlighting question about whether to abandon my current approach with xmllint.

Getting past the tools on the command line (for a hand written Makefile) is just getting frustrating and is why the current chain of commands have never evolved to anything Java-based.
