> I use Xalan because I have found bugs in Saxon that Dr. Kay > has told me he will not fix... I think that Elliotte is referring here to the Saxon 6.5.x code base: I'm not aware of any issues in Saxon 8.x where there are acknowledged bugs that I have said I won't fix (unless there's a good reason, like I'm expecting the spec to change). Saxon 6.5.x includes a version of the AElfred parser, but I don't regard that as part of the Saxon code base and I've declined to fix bugs there because it's not my code and you have the option of using a different XML parser: it was only included for convenience in the days before there was a parser in the JVM. As far as I'm aware the full list of non-conformances in Saxon 6.5.4 is documented at: http://saxon.sourceforge.net/saxon6.5.4/limitations.html The reason these weren't fixed when I did the last maintenance release was that they affected very few users, but fixing them would involve changing substantial amounts of code which would almost certainly introduce more bugs than they solved (some of them are also in areas where it's far from clear what the correct behaviour is). There's no such thing as zero bugs, unfortunately. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
