Yes, you are right - that was just a quick hack to get it working at all.

OK, now I understand this.

You should maybe clarify this in the example located in
"jakarta-site2/examples/jakarta-myproject/xdocs/stylesheets". Ant just uses
a plain copy of this and I would have done so also if I had followed the
documentation: "Copy the project.xml file from the
jakarta-site2/xdocs/stylesheets/ directory into your
jakarta-myproject/xdocs/stylesheets/ directory" :-)
