    I am running a Docbook XML file using XEP and am getting the error message

    Making portrait pages on USletter paper (210mmx11in)
    No adjustColumnWidths function available.
    Processing terminated by xsl:message at line 203
    I followed the instructions in Chapter Three of Bob Stayton's online
    book. This gave me the following script: I found a note from Mr. Stayton
    on a different support list that suggested this error message is related
    to use of the Xalan processor.


    # This script encapsulates a standard SAXON call.
    # This Script example borrowed from another application






    $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -Xbootclasspath/p:$NEW_LIB_HOME/xalan-2.4.1.jar:$NEW_LIB_HOME/xercesImpl-2.2.1.jar:$NEW_LIB_HOME/xml-apis.jar -classpath $CP com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet \
       -o $1.fo $1 \
       $STYLESHEETS_HOME/custom-fo.xsl \

    By the way, I tried the exact same XML input file with the FOP that is
    open source. It works fine and gives me a beautiful PDF file.

    I suspect that I made a minor mistake in installation or the
    shell file to invoke XEP. Thanks for your help.
