Search the archives.  There has been plenty of discussion on this.  The 
docs mention that the LE version leaves out what the JDK already 
has.  However, other stuff such as dbcp and other jars are removed as 
well.  This is not documented well (if at all) and has been, in my 
experience on the list, the cause of endless confusion.  If all you are 
concerned about is the XML stuff, just delete everything in the 
common/endorsed directory and you are good to go.  However, I wouldn't do 
this as crimson isn't exactly up to date, the dom apis aren't standard 
(taken from an unofficial version of the spec), and I would make sure to 
put xalan.jar in there to override the old buggy version that comes with 
the JDK.
