If you are using java -jar the classpath isn't used, otherwise you just need to have saxon8.jar. > I like Saxon very much especially for being able to take a look on the output. > Is there any way to see what Firefox or IE6 produce? MS have a download addon that adds a "view xslt output" right menu option to IE. http://www.google.com/search?q=internet+explorer+xml+tools+xslt+view howver error reporting in a browser is always rather suspect and developing with saxon gives much better error messages. Also, you are using xslt2 which is not implemented in the browsers at the current time.
