Hi Steve ... thanks for the follow-up. Based on what you and Antoine
said, I started digging down to find a newer version of xalan,
install it, hook it up as you guys suggested, testing my stuff again
... it feels like a rat-hole to me.

A better man would take the hour or two it would require to do all
that. My learning, teaching, and proselytizing go in other
directions, and I think that's where my energy needs to be put.
Right now, I think I'll stop where I am, with running code.

Thanks to you and Antoine for the pointers: I'll save them against
the day when something else breaks. I'm sure that day will come.

Thanks again!
