Cool. I should really do a formal release soon.

This sounds like a Xalan version issue. You could try a later version of
Xalan. (Have you any old ones tucked away in the dreaded jre/lib/ext?
You also need a 1.1 version of jaxp.jar but I'm assuming you have that in
your CLASSPATH to be able to find the Xalan processor.

Agreed. I tend to avoid using jre/lib/ext as its easy to forget whats in
there (and how old the version is) and can be quite confusing when things
don't work.
