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

Yes, DocBook XSL used to support syntax highlighting with xslthl, so I'll look into some more over the next couple of days.

Docbook at xslthl http://xslthl.sourceforge.net/

Question for the community?
   Is this 'supported' by docbook-xsl?
   Is the author of this a part of the docbook community?
AFAIK docbook does (used to?) support syntax hightlighting?

I thought I would summarize my progress on syntax highlighting and then ask
about the sourceforge.net version of Saxon.

My DocBook is "docbook-xsl-ns-1.79.1". My install of xslthl is

When using the jar files which came with DocBook 5.1, and from xslthl 2.1.3,
I can build without error and line numbering works, but syntax highlighting
never occurs. My CLASSPATH for this case has these files in it based on
various documents I found on the topic:

The command to build is this after CLASSPATH export:
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 is apparently version 6.5 of Saxon when using the jar files which come
with DocBook 5.1.

I've downloaded Saxon (saxonHE9-7-0-15J) from sourceforge.net, which
provides these jar files (I assume saxon9he.jar is equivalent to the
saxon.jar provided in DocBook 5.1, though DocBook 5.1 also provides a
saxon9he.jar; I have no idea if saxon9-xqj.jar is involved):

I am unsure how I should rearrange my CLASSPATH to use XSLT 2 via saxon9he
instead of XSLT 1 via the jar files included from DocBook 5.1. I've done
some experimenting, but the DocBook version of saxon.jar seems to be
required if com.icl.saxon.Stylesheet is to be found (I can't just substitute
saxon9he.jar). Substitutions or removal of "extensions/saxon65.jar" fails
No adjustColumnWidths function available.

Is there a sample CLASSPATH or edit to the java command line to see how the
XSLT 2 requirements can be filled? Related settings to enable highlighting
are on, and language is correctly set (fop.xconf and fo/param.xsl are
correctly configured).

FYI, being able to syntax highlight and annotate would be a major benefit
(and in some cases it is mandatory I be able to do this), so I have to keep
digging in.
