I haven't tried 1.4, but I would suggest you experiment with 3.2 instead
of 3.1.  The reason is that 3.2 can use any JAXP-compatible XML parser.
If memory servers me, doesn't 1.4 have a JAXP-compatible parser built
in?  If so, it could be interfering with the old parser (in xml.jar) that
Tomcat 3.1 used.
