It's helpful in such cases to identify the processor in question. Ideally
you should report the bug to the vendor: any respectable vendor will be
grateful for the information (this kind of error can survive in a product
for years: for example at one time Saxon didn't require xsl:param to come
before other things in a template, and either no-one noticed, or they didn't
report it). 

Failing that, don't hesitate to name the processor on this list. It's useful
for the community as a whole to know that a particular processor has a
particular bug, and it also helps people to help you with your problem.
