Let's note that P5 is not Roma, and Roma-Web is not Roma-shell script.
does not require any setup at all, if you have a running bash, xsltproc
and trang. Roma-Web
is much more complex, needing PHP and an eXist server. P5 needs xsltproc
(and Perl to clean up) to build schemas and documentation; running all
and so on needs a little more.
Really, this stuff is not supposed to set a barrier in any way. I am
surprised that it goes wrong for people!
What seems to have happened recently is that I used this construct:
<xsl:key name="ELEMENT-ALPHA" match="tei:elementSpec"
ie using the "translate" function in a key construct, and predefined
variables $uc and $lc. This is, by the way, to easily get at all
elements starting with 'A' or the like. I should stress that this
is an addon which makes the TEI Guidelines web version
(forthcoming), not the main stylesheets.
I was surprised that this caused problems, I must say. Do
other XSLT mavens here think it is weird?
