Perhaps this should be documented on the BoostBook "Getting Started"
page? Along with the fact (if it's still true) that you have to delete
catalog.xml for changes to the configuration file to take effect, and
that if any existing .html files in the doc\html directory are
read-only, (e.g. because cvs, or perhaps Tortoise CVS, makes them read
only when you do a cvs checkout), BoostBook won't replace them?

I re-downloaded and reinstalled libxslt and related libraries and now it
seems to be working. No doubt I'll have some questions about how to use
it, but that will have to wait until I actually do.

Thanks for the help,
