Handling for soCalled

We need the soCalled element, so I've added it to the schema and added some basic handling for it in the XSLT. There'll be more of this sort of thing now the team is bigger and more revision is happening. Lots of discussions about similar elements, when to use what, and so on. We need a more detailed style guide integrated with the encoding guidelines.

Worked with DL on diagnostics for image inconsistencies

He's learned a lot of XSLT and we've now integrated that and the other diagnostic into an ant task running on the server.

Jenkins job with validation running

Finished the work I started on the plane, and got two things working: first, schema building from the ODD, which incorporates prebuilding the XSLT from Schematron, and second, an ant task for validation. Then I created a Jenkins job to run the validation, and tacked on the existing consistency check task, which is a simple text-only diagnostic.

Odd svn bug

WJL's final commit of the day failed yesterday, because of a hash sum mismatch. We were unable to solve it last night, but started again this morning. My guess is that it was caused by a corrupted .svn folder on the local machine, or by a corruption on the server. In any case, the only solution was to svn-delete the whole folder, svn-add it again, and then copy backups of the files into it and svn-add them. Weird.
