	The problem has been fixed in CVS, but I've inclided the information 
you requested.  

	I'm still getting the class def error after downloading and
building the jar from CVS.  It can't find the NoSuchElementException.
The comes from the jar that Jason sent and the jar I built from
scratch.  Build environment is linux/redhat/2.2.14/jdk1.2.2-rc4.
The runtime environment is Solaris/2.7/jdk1.2.2-ref (both 
command line and from within Weblogic app server).

	The java source file that generated the erroneous output
with the b4 build is:

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
import org.jdom.*;
import org.jdom.input.*;
import org.jdom.output.*;

import com.hifusion.xml.*;

public class jdom_test {

    public static void main(String[] arg) {

	if(arg.length < 1) {
	    System.out.println("usage: java jdom_test <filename>");

	jdom_test t = new jdom_test(arg[0]);


    public jdom_test(String filename) {

	try {

	    SAXBuilder b = new SAXBuilder();

	    System.out.println("Building DOM document...");

	    Document doc = b.build(new File(filename));

	    XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter();

	    fmt.output(doc, System.out);
	    //System.out.println("Building HTML...");

	    //Document d= XMLUtils.merge(doc);
	    System.out.println("The HTML is:\n"+Publisher.getHTML(doc));

	    //System.out.println("The raw doc is:
	    //XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter();
	    //fmt.output(d, System.out);

	} catch(Exception ex) {
