Using the latest xsl files should be okay (I'm using 1.73.2, the

You (Rene) might need to delete bin.v2/boostbook.jam. It doesn't
always get updated when the configuration is changed.

It doesn't look like you're using cygwin, which is a pity as cygwin's
easier to setup. There are a few dodgy version of xsltproc for
windows. If you have further problems you might want to look at the
