This almost constitutes an FAQ...

It's probably to do with the order that your CLASSPATH settings are set...
there is an older version of org.w3c.dom.* which is included in one of the
previous versions of JServ, which uses DOM version 1, and the newer versions
of Xalan (or is it Xerces... I can't remember), which uses DOM version 2...
very similar, but different enough to cause this drama...

The answer (at least in JServ) is to put the CLASSPATHs for cocoon before
the classpaths for Tomcat/Jserv (in order).

Is this right? (please correct me...)
