Q3. Anyone else seen this? With a clean build? Oracle Java 9?

The build doesn't work with Java 9. In any case, it works OK for me with Java 8, on Windows.

Ok, good news there. I've downgraded Java to Java 8, removed the fork="true" additions and built the docs again. No problems. So I'll stick with Java 8 for now.

I might even try to learn some Ant stuff! Maybe. Perhaps.

A possible workaround is to add dir="${html.dir}" to the java task in the html task (when fork="true", this will use that as the current working directory), I haven't tested it though. However, I'm not sure if forking may cause other issues, so maybe we should tread carefully here.

No worries. I didn't try this option as the Java 8 one worked fine. I've reverted the build.xml back to how it was and it's fine. As you mention, what other issues could have been unleashed!

In any case, maybe we should look at updating ant (and maybe some of the other dependencies).

We need an Ant guru then! :-)

Thanks for your help.
