If you are using JDK 1.4 or JDK 1.5 and did not do anything special, you
are using the xalan2 implementation which ships with the JDK.

The xalan-2 j team :
Note that is quite possible that your bug is already fixed by the xalan
team, but not yet by sun.
To rule out this possibility, you need to download the latest releaseed
version of xalan.

To be able to effectively use it, read this docu :
 and put the jar in a directory %JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\endorsed,
or start ant with :
set ANT_OPTS=-Djava.endorsed.dirs=fullpath to xalan.jar

If your bug also happens with the latest released version of xalan2, you
will probably have to check whether there is a bug report for this issue.


hopes this helps,
