JDK 1.5 does not bundle Xalan anymore, but XSLTC (or something).
redirect is a proprietary extension of Xalan, bound to a Xalan
specific namespace, so I'm surprised it worked at all in the first

I've personnally switched to Saxon 8.4 for my XSL needs, and I'm glad
I did. Being able to use the new XSL 2.0 and XPath 2.0 feature is a
relief. A lot can be done much simpler. XSL 2.0 incorporated the
equivalent to redirect, in the form of <xsl:result-document>, so it's
no longer a XSL-processor specific extension.

Since Saxon is JAXP compliant, all I had to do was to put saxon8.jar
first on the CLASSPATH used by Ant, and <style> worked just fine. --DD

PS: <style> was deprecated, and we should all use <xslt> now...
