I'll let Scott handle this then. If it's a Cocoon problem, I'll fix it,
otherwise I can only help a little (I don't know Xalan code that much,
I'm afraid).

Oh, yes. This is the best way to fix a problem.

Hmmm, I would like to suggest you to think again about your statement.
True, I think XT is XSLT processor to beat (as Scott knows) but
"standard conformation" is a commitment of all the xml apache projects
and Scott is part of the working group that created the spec.

I think the Xalan team has a long way to understand how to work with a
community of open source developers, this is the most important issue.
Everything else is just a bug that is waiting for someone to fix it :)
