Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Sun Resolver classes released

If you're using Saxon with these classes, beware of the following
problem: AElfred, Saxon's default XML parser, has a serious bug in
recent Saxon releases; it calculates the base URI of external entities

To avoid this problem, I suggest that you use Xerces or any other JAXP
compliant parser, instead of AElfred. This can be accomplished with
the following options *to java*:

  # Force Saxon to use a decent parser (AElfred doesn't do PEs right)

  java -Djavax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory=$DBFACTORY \
     -Djavax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory=$SPFACTORY \
     << any other options you want to use: -cp, etc. >>
     com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet \
     << parameters to Saxon >>

I have no idea how to do this if you're using InstantSaxon.

                                        Be seeing you,

P.S. If you're using Windows and not UNIX, the relevant bits are the
-D options to java, but you'll have to do the variable declarations
with 'set' and use % instead of $, etc.
