I'll give it a try next time I'm working on docbook, which is unlikely to be
for a few days.

Yes, I thought it was a bit odd that some DB stylesheets specifically need an
old Saxon to work.  Perhaps the current work on 1.78.1 stylesheets could look
at this.
(There is a comment at the top which says "Only Saxon 6.4.2 or later is
supported" - if this issue is not fixed the comment should be amended to make
it clearer that only Saxon 6.4.2 to 6.5.5 are supported, and not later !)

What would a straight change to result-document need doing with regard to the
use of the test for element-available('saxon:output') ?  (presumably anything
doing that could just be deleted)
And the saxon:character-representation parameter of saxon:output - how would
that need changing, as it doesn't appear to map to a result-document
parameter/attribute (as do all the other params) ?


PS.  I'm reluctant to cross-post but this does now seem to be a
docbook-specific issue....
