I haven't used xmlcatalogs myself so far, but I'm pretty sure others
have.  Late on in a different message you say you want the catalog to
resolve the stylesheet itself - I'm afraid this is not supported.

The docs say Ant would log a warning if the resolver cannot be found.
"no message" indicates Ant doesn't try to use the catalog at all to me.

How (a build.xml snippet) are you trying catalogs to do what?

The <xslt> task only uses catalogs to resolve DTDs and entities inside
the XML documents - it does not use the catalog when locating the
documents to transform or the stylesheet itself.
