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?
