  + <question>Are external entities still broken?</question>
  + <answer>
  +  <p>No, external entity support has been fixed for both absolute and
  +  URIs. Note that ProjectX and Xerces behave differently on these but
  +  is not something we are in control of.</p>

  + <question>Why %lt;xsl:import%gt; and %lt;xsl:include%gt; don't work with
  + <answer>
  +  <p>This is a problem in the way that Xalan handles DOM-based
stylesheets, it will be
  +  fixed as soon as Cocoon moves on a SAX based architecture. As a work
around, you can
  +  consider using XT which has no problems.</p>
  + </answer>
  + <question>I see that Cocon 1.x has starting to incorporate features
planned for 
  + Cocoon 2.x, why?</question>
  + <answer>
  +  <p>We believe that smooth project evolution is much better than
  +  revolutionary paths. For this reason, we'll try hard to incorporate all
  +  Cocoon2 features in the main project thus limiting the porting effort
for you
  +  over time.</p>
  +  <p>Note that this doesn't mean that Cocoon won't change in the future
and we
  +  state clearly that we do care about back compatibility but only when
this is
  +  not limiting the evolution of he platform too much.</p>
  +  <p>For this reason, while the DOM->SAX evolution might be totally
painless, the
  +  sitemap proposal will completely change the Cocoon configurations.
Anyway, Cocoon
  +  has a long way to go and if it changes during its evolution to a final
