The version I have is self-contained: it just needs Java.

As it appears to be covered by a license to copy, I have put
my copy at

$ java -jar xpathtester_1_4_saxon.jar

It has a habit of looking in strange places for DTDs, like the
directory the .jar file lives in, rather than the directory the
document instance lives in, but I think that was FiveSight's
unfamiliarity with convention. Otherwise it seems to work OK.
