First of all, I'd generally suggest placing questions into the mailing lists
[1] first (searching for related threads prior to the post, of course)... One
may prefer using an alternative interface, such as Nabble [2], a bit more user
friendly (specially for searches and such).

As far as I know (please correct me if I'm wrong), this is due to the fact that
Batik targeted Java 1.3 as of Batik release version 1.7. Currently, Java 1.4 is
the target for the trunk version [3].

Apparently, Java 1.3 didn't contain the JAXP features and Java 1.4 had them
with few bugs [4] so I'd say that, until Batik targets Java 1.5, this may be a

(Read above first.)

I'd say that this is just a coincidence. Probably, in the environments that
work as expected, either:
 * Are using Java 1.4 (which apparently uses the same namespaces for the
embedded JAXP functionality [4] as crimson);
 * Crimson is available in the default classpath.

@Matt Fisher
The "need info" status for bug reports is more targeted at when more
information is required from the reporter [5], which doesn't seem to be the
case here (I understand the underlying idea, though). ;-)

Hope this helps,
