I spumbled across a problem with Norman Welshes website.dtd and
its xsl style sheets. Those style sheets uses a non-standard
(?) function exists(), which isn't supported by xsltproc, but
by xalan and saxon.

IMHO, using non-standart java functions with standart XML and
XSLT is not good.

Is there a way to use xsltproc and to avoid the switch to java?

Yes, you can simple modify website stylesheets and use
xsltproc, but you get update for all pages on each build.

Example of customization is attached.

There is also the alternate build process for website
using Make rather than pure XSLT.  That should avoid
the use of the exists() extension function.  See:

The example uses xsltproc.
