The online SaxonC Python API documentation seems kind of broken, I am directed to as the overview document but that contains links like

<a href="saxoncee.html#PyDocumentBuilder">PyDocumentBuilder</a>

and the saxoncee.html leads to a 404.

Thanks for spotting this. There seems to be some confusion with the generation of the documentation: saxonc.html vs saxoncee.html We will investigate this further.

Yes. The move from saxonc to saxoncee, saxoncpe, and saxonche in the 11th hour had some knock on effects. I believe we casually rename saxoncee.html to saxonc.html during the doc build because it simplified some other parts of the build. It'll have to be fixed one way or another.

I've fixed the online SaxonC Python API doc, so the internal links are correct.

Fixing the doc build itself is in progress.

I've committed a change in the docs build script which hopefully fixes the issue by correcting all the links (by replacing "saxoncee.html" with "saxonc.html"). I haven't been able to check it because I can't currently build the python API docs.
