Since it's an XML parsing problem coming from Xerces, not an XSLT
transformation processing problem coming from Xalan, I'd say you probably
have an encoding problem. Not to mention a bug in how Xerces handles it.

Are you *sure* your documents are actually encoded as UTF-8 or did you
just declare them to be UTF-8 without actualy saving them as UTF-8? Point
us to a representative XML file (don't copy/paste it here), or run it
through a different parser and see if you get a more helpful error
