No, it does not need to be specific to each language. The imports should look something like this in your customization layer, putting it after the import of the main docbook.xsl:

<xsl:import href="some/path/to/docbook-xsl/fo/docbook.xsl"/>
<xsl:import href="some/path/to/docbook-xsl/fo/highlight.xsl"/>

I see by default in fo/highlighting.xsl (I'm using fo):
<xsl:import href="../highlighting/common.xsl"/>

My XSL knowledge is minimal, but if for example I'm using bourne as the
language, do I need to import something specific to bourne? The README
has a note about importing, but it isn't clear what the intended import
file is.

I followed the instructions in my book for syntax highlighting, and it
did not work. I know it worked when I wrote it, because I tested
everything before I included it.
It turns out that my book documents the 1.73.1 version of the
stylesheets, and the highlighting was changed in version 1.74.3. Now
your customization layer needs to use xsl:import on the appropriate
highlight.xsl file, such fo/highlight.xsl. When I added that, syntax
highlighting worked for me.
The highlighting/README file in the distribution provided that crucial
bit of information. I'm currently updating my book and will include
this change.

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
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
I don’t bother swapping in Xerces (I don’t use any of the features that
go beyond what Saxon supports).

I was going by this reference as to requirements, and have not read
the whole book (thus I did not yet see the Java requirement):

Admittedly I'm trying to do something quicker than I should and not
reading everything (I've been through a lot of material, but it's just a
drop in the bucket for everything needed when I really just need to sit
down and write content). 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.

To use Saxon or Xalan I would have to change the current build scheme,
which I've never succeeded at:
xmllint --output "${OBJ}/${TITLE}_monolithic.xml" --nonet --noent
-xinclude "${CONTENT}/${TITLE}.xml"
xsltproc --output ${OBJ}/${TITLE}_monolithic.fo ${XSLT}/docbook.xsl
fop -c ${PREFIX}/fop.xconf -fo ${OBJ}/${TITLE}_monolithic.fo -pdf

I realize I'm probably asking a lot, but is there any advice I can get
on editing that chain of commands to instead work with Saxon or Xalan?
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.

I do plan on reading more (I'm not resisting reading), but there are
other requirements which tend to require at least a draft to be
available sooner rather than later.

Did you read this section in my online book about line numbering? It
only works with Java-based processors.
