[xep-support] Out of memory error?

Thanks Chris - I figured it was something like that. I guess I need to 
figure out how to run from the command line. I have tried using the .bat 
file that is provided with the tool. I am running the following as a 
.bat file without success:

c:\xslt\xep.bat -fo c:\xslt\fo\out20.fo -out c:\xslt\fo\renderout.ps -ps

I couldn't find any examples in the documentation - web site or 
reference manual - that were complete and explained exactly what to 
specify. I'm not much of a command line persona any more. So...  If you 
have an example that you would be willing to share I sure would 
appreciate it. I am giving the formatter an XSL-FO file and I want the 
output in PostScript format. It would be great if you could show me 
where to put the -Xmx parameter. My machine has 512 mg of ram.

When I run the bat file there are error messages that flash in the 
window for a fraction of a second but I can't read them. Is there a way 
to send the diagnostic output to a file instead of to the screen?

Thanks in advance - Steve
