The book says:
java -jar C:/Saxon/Saxon6-5-5/saxon.jar -o output.xml accounts.xml streamline.xsl
That doesn't work on my machine. Looking at the Saxon site the -o can't be -o[space]filename, but -o:filename. --Wayne Brissette

Stylesheet doesn't produce the intended output. The last para is printed in a "section1".

Figure 44 - "test" compares ref_id an instance_id values, however, they will only ever match with additional condition such as "contains" or substring, because the instance_id values are prefixed with language. For example ref_id="01" and instance_id="en-01".--Neil Taylor

XML-file on page 172 is not well-formed and therefore won't be processed by any XSLT-processor. It's a strange idea (and also wrong) to mix XML and XSLT in one single file. Omit the starting and end tags of all XSLT tags within the <codeline>-elements and the example will work properly.--Wolfram
