	Yup. This works. All 490 tests build ok now. Quite a bit faster too. Interestingly it
	had no effect on the NullPointerException I mentioned. If I take out that fix I still get
	it:

	[miallen@miallen3 DOM-Test-Suite]$ ant dom1-dtd
	Buildfile: build.xml
	...

	dom1-dtd:
	    [style] Processing /home/miallen/p/c/domts/2001/DOM-Test-Suite/build/dom1-interfaces.xml to /home/miallen/p/c/domts/2001/DOM-Test-Suite/build/dom1.dtd
	    [style] Loading stylesheet /home/miallen/p/c/domts/2001/DOM-Test-Suite/transforms/dom-to-dtd.xsl
	    [style] Failed to process /home/miallen/p/c/domts/2001/DOM-Test-Suite/build/dom1-interfaces.xml

	BUILD FAILED

	/home/miallen/p/c/domts/2001/DOM-Test-Suite/build.xml:396: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: java.lang.NullPointerException

	Total time: 10 seconds

	Thanks,
