AFAIK tomcat works in NT very well, i'm on NT, and tomcat works for me
very well without problems in deploying WAR files that contain
WEB-INF/lib, but Xalan needs to be installed in the main classpath
BEFORE any other DOM implementation, due to a restriction in the DOM2 (
experimental ) support, this info is from the cocoon intall.... i dont
know Xalan very well but i use Tomcat everyday without problems.

hope this helps.
