My apologies. The command I sent was for the command line version of Saxon.
I don't use it on servlets, prefering to run Saxon by hand

Saxon and Xalan implement different extensions differently. You can run both
Saxon and Xalan from the command line, but be aware from the start that they
will not work exactly the same with a given piece of XSLT stylesheets.

See answer above.
