    Does it return null or are some of the intermediate things NULL?

    Your code to initialize the prefix map should look like that in
                Map prefixes = new HashMap();
                prefixes.put(XMLConstants.XMLNS_PREFIX + ':'
                        + XMLConstants.XLINK_PREFIX,
                res = DOMUtilities.parseXML(text, doc, uri, prefixes,
                        SVGConstants.SVG_SVG_TAG, df);

> Node n = DOMUtilities.parseXML("<use xlink:href=\"#QuestionMark\" 
overflow=\"visible\" width=\"10.512\" height=\"6.273\" x=\"5\" y=\"10\" 
/>", doc, svgFile.toURI().toString(), map, "g", documentFactory); 

     You should also wrap things in an 'svg' element.

     I don't see anything obvious wrong and since I think your first 
call should work I think you will need to add some debugging code to
Batik to figure out what is happening.  I would suggest printing any
exception in DOMUtilities.parseXML (right at the end it eats any
exceptions from parsing the fragment and importing it).
