Yes, not easy is it. I’ve asked for help. (for info my page is at https://datatracker.ietf.org/person/Jay%20Daley but I don’t know how to navigate to that).

Yep, hence the suggestion to look on your Datatracker page.

That would be "• XML using a different output process" but in response to someone else I’ve already added
"XML using xml2rfc to create plain text for submission"
Does that match your usage of xml2rfc?
