OK, I guess I was reading too fast.

I was looking for something that said "type this, and you'll
see the problem". I suppose we have that now, for folks
that regularly use Java. I'm not yet able to reproduce
the problem.

I have zero experience with jaxp, so even a dead simple use
is going to take me a while to get my head around.

Just to put my ignorance in full view, I tried that and failed thusly...

$ java applyXSLT -IN index.xml -XSL diffspec.xsl -PARAM show.diff.markup
0 -OUT test-index-all.htm
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: applyXSLT

I guessed that's because I haven't compiled it, so I guessed
at how to compile it and failed...

$ javac applyXSLT.java
bash: javac: command not found

So I'll have to remember how to get java going on this debian
linux machine, I guess. Or maybe I'll try it on my Mac laptop.

Here's hoping... and bonus points to anybody who beats me to it...
