That's strange as no Cocoon URI resolving does not take part here. 
Sylvain tried to replace the resolver with the Cocoon one for usage of 
Cocoon pseudo protocols, but this broke the local URIs (#), so it was 
reverted. It lived from Feb, 4th, to Feb 8th - I hope your Cocoon is not 
from that time. Cocoon 2.1.4 does not contains this.

What does it mean? No Batik at all? Cocoon's fop JAR as standalone?

It's the 0.20.5 release, but built with our Batik 1.5. I guess the FOP 
people must clarify if this made any sense or not. IIRC we had the 
released Fop jar in our CVS and got complaints for problems with Batik 
after Batik update. So we rebuilt Fop with this new Batik and the 
problems seemed to be gone. The FOP 0.20.5 release uses Batik 1.5 beta 4.

Hmm, head *or* branch :) I guess you mean the recent stuff from the branch.

Not a very integrative solution ...

After Batik 1.5 b 2 we had b5 and the 1.5 release in use. The latter two 
are newer then FOP 0.20.5 and its Batik 1.5 b4. I would like to see this 
solved for Cocoon finally.

For Steve it should work to use Fop 0.20.5's jar and its batik.jar (the 
1.5 b4) and to replace the Cocoon's versions of these two jars.
