It's usually a far easier option than you think...   The reasons for
not using Saxon I usually come across are:

- Never heard of it (despite heavy use of XSLT in the application)
- Confusion with SAX processing
- It's something new / yet another jar / general reluctance for change

Depending on your setup, you should be able to:

- swap in Saxon for Xalan without a problem
- use both, but specifically use Saxon for the transforms under your control
- or at worst some code changes when you use Xalan specifc features

It's all really simple and often takes longer to convince people it's
worthwhile than it does to actually do it.
