Sorry I forgot to say that I tested it, and it works fine (thanks Arthur!!!).

This is why I was trying to test it in Windows...but doing:

doesn't work, like is not the correct path. I still don't know the reason.
Still looking into it.

Well, actually Gaby figured it out. wh-sandbox inherited that from

Well, I know that Arthur's code is already works on Windows (well
missing the mathML stuff that is not in wh-sanbox) and the error
I described above.

You need to use the version of GCL that build-improvements and wh-sanbox
are using if I am not mistaken. Waldek can probably say if this is correct.

I am not sure, I never got Martin's code to run :-(. But he can say if
his code provides the same or more functionality.
