Sorry, the example painted the picture (to me) that it was
an external document.

Some xml structure such that either the 'variables' are CDATA  element
content or individual content within elements?

<manifest>
<items>${html_stylesheet}   ${my_schema_rng}  ${main_fo_stylesheet} </

or
<manifest>
<item>${html_stylesheet}</
<item> ${example_catalog}</
</

etc?
