Microsoft's jexegen. I think the Windows version of xt is built using this
tool as well, so I doubt this explains any difference. Certainly virtual
memory behaviour can cause surprises, there can also be surprises where one
processor happens to optimise some XPath construct and another processor
doesn't. The only case I found where Saxon runs substantially (i.e. five
times) faster than xt is a stylesheet (my knight's tour) that makes
significant use of format-number(): and then only with the Microsoft Java
VM, because it turns out xt uses an underlying Java class that is much less
efficient in Microsoft Java than in Sun Java.
