Hi David,

I  think this is a Xalan problem.
Pay attention, if you are using JDK 1.4, you might well be using the 
xalan version which is delivered as part of the runtime of the jdk and 
which is old.
If you want to test agains a recent version of xalan, you probably want 
to put your xalan.jar under $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/endorsed/xalan.jar

Come back to the list in any case to confirm whether xalan or ant is the 
bugger. Then have a look in bugzilla [1] to see whether the bug has been 
Enter a bug report if this is a new problem, otherwise add comments and 
your email as CC if you like.
