Hi Everyone,

I've just recently decided to use Boost.Book on Win32 and at the end
of the python script, there was a URL pointing to the patched xsltproc
for windows. I tried accessing the link and it seems like it's broken
(or it doesn't let me download the xsltproc referred to).

I also checked the documentation ( ), and it
refers to -- however this produces a set of
errors like the following:

warning: failed to load external entity
compilation error: file
file:///C%3A/src/RC_1_34_0/boost/tools/boostbook/xsl/html.xsl line 8
element import

I'm noticing that the colon character is being URL encoded as %3A --
I'm not sure if that's supposed to be the case.

I'm not even sure if this is a bug in boostbook's configuration for
Boost.Jam (RC_1_34_0) or xsltproc but I thought it might be worth

Any workarounds to get this working in Windows?
