I have downloaded the saxon package from 
http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/teideb/ in order to get the version needed for 
Sebastian's stylesheets, which I pulled directly from Subversion using 
the instructions at http://wiki.tei-c.org/index.php/Tei-xsl instead of 
getting the tei-xsl package at http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/teideb/ . 
(Perhaps I should have downloaded the package instead.)

I have also tried downloading the tei-oxygen package, but it didn't 
include the Java SE Runtime Environment from Oracle, which syncRO's tech 
support told me I should use to avoid the bugs it was causing when I 
tried using <oXygen/>.  They recommended I instead download from their 
site and use their installer in order to get the right JVM.  Did that 
and it worked much better.
