I am very happy with 6.5.3. Seems to be faster than xalan and more 
robust. I switched to saxon, when xalan failed for very complex 
stylesheets and never looked back. At some points its more picky
about stylesheets. E,g. <template match="node = $parameter">   
was accepted by xalan but correctly rejected by saxon. 
This may concern some logicsheets.
