Excuse my frustration. It was answered but not correctly and your
presumption doesn't work out.

- You renamed the JAR you distribute as Xalan.jar, dropping the version
number. However, I got the version number from the readme you included:

"This is Xalan 1.3p, distributed from http://xml.apache.org. It also comes
with the JAXP 1.1 Reference Implementation available at

- You say you just downloaded the binary from
http://xml.apache.org/dist/xalan-j/. Please excuse my stupidity if it is
there, but I can find no link to any version between 1.2.2 and 2.0 at either
the URL you gave, or the 'old' directory off of there. Unless you tell me
that 1.3p is actually some other version number. If so, please enlighten me.

- So, I looked here for the CVS sources:
http://xml.apache.org/websrc/cvsweb.cgi/xml-xalan/ and they don't even list
that version as an option.

- I downloaded the Xerces 1.3.1 source to see if it included TrAX (JAXP)
Transformer implementations for Xalan. It doesn't.

- When I search at Google for 'xalan "1.3p"' I only get your readme file.

So, please excuse the repetition, but I'm looking for the source to try and
diagnose problems I'm having using JAXP parsers and transformers.
Specifically, the error text is unclear and I'm trying to find the code
where certain errors are being thrown.
