When using JDOMSource, the Xalan can't process the id() pattern as it misses
the DTD that defines the attribute ID of <server> is an ID.
There are three causes to your problem:
1. SAXOutputter (on which JDOMSource relies) only supports LexicalHandlers
to report comments but does not fire any DTD related events. That could be fixed.
2. JDOMSource does not propagate LexicalHandler registrations to
SAXOutputter. That could be fixed too.
3. Xalan expects the SAX parser to parse the DTD and report DTD information
through the DeclHandler interface.
Point #3 is the tough part as JDOM has no implementation of a DTD parsing tool
nor support for DTDHandlers and DeclHandler.
But support of DTD/DeclHandlers is item #1 on the JDOM to-do list.
Jason, what are the news from that front?
