>From the Aelfred web site on Sourceforge:

"Saxon versions from 7.2 onwards no longer include a built-in XML parser. 
This decision was taken because Saxon is now dependent on JDK 1.4, which 
includes its own XML parser, and therefore the original reason for 
bundling a parser with Saxon has disappeared."

That listing is a bit out of date, as the last couple versions (8.5 and 
8.6) of Saxon use the 1.5 JDK.

So, versions 7 & 8 of Saxon (which provide access to XSLT 2.0) use 
Crimson. Version 6.x uses Aelfred. I believe the OP mentioned using Saxon 
8, so the parser in question is Crimson.
