The log4j 1.2 layout can produce non well formed content for some  
atypical content (a message with an embedded -->, threads containing &  
or >, etc).  Plus it does not output MDC content (log4j 1.3 does, but  
shares the other shortcomings).  I've been tempted to overhaul it but  
am hesitant to break code that might have compensated for its  
idiosyncracies.  My current thought is to add an XsltAppender to the  
extras companion that uses the xslt support added in idk 1.4.  If no  
transform is provided, a default transform that results in a format  
compatible with the current output but done right.  If you wanted some  
other format, you could embed the xslt transform if you were using  
log4j 1.2.15 or higher or the replacement configurator in the extras
