[oXygen-user] Error: Too many nested apply-templates calls

Hello Raymond,

A problem cannot be addressed in a FAQ list or the User Manual before it 
can be reproduced. What do you mean by xml:base mangling ? Can you 
provide a complete example ? Did the message "Too many nested 
apply-templates calls" disappear and the transformation started working 
just by modifying the oxygen.sh startup params or you changed also other 
things in the customization layer ? What was insufficient: heap size or 
stack size ? Maybe these answers would be helpful for other users.

Thank you,
