Hi Alan,

This exception simply signals that the XML document resulting from the XSL 
transformation is not a valid XML document. In your case, the output is not 
XML at all so you should not try to build a JDOM document from it. You should 
use a StreamResult instead of a JDOMResult.

Please also note that, from the stack trace, your are probably not using JDOM 
beta8 but an earlier version.
