Note that this is not a legal namespace declaration these days. After a
painful debate, the Namespaces spec was clarified to say that namespace
names must be *absolute* URI references; relative references such as this
one are officially deprecated, since there was no consensus on how they
should be interpreted. Start by fixing this -- I don't think it's the cause
of the error message you're reporting, but as it stands your document is
extremely nonportable at best.

I'd like to see a small stand-along example that provokes the problem,
rather than shippets out of context, so we could try actually running it
and see what's happening.

(BTW, if you want support specifically for Xalan, your best bet may be
Xalan's own mailing lists rather than this one; see
http://xml.apache.org/mail.html. On the other hand, this is a better place
to ask about techniques for using the XSLT language itself. If you aren't
sure whether something's a bug or a feature, of course, figuring out where
to start can be tough...)
