I re-tried with Saxon9 and the parser with that release worked.  Additionally,
it (actually, the newer transformer) informed me I had a illegal "encoding" 
attribute in my stylesheet.  After removing the bad attribute, I went
back to 6.5.5, but the parser issue with that release remained.  I am
happy with just using saxon9, so issue solved - thanks again.
