SAXParserFactory is a Sun class they invented to fill a hole in SAX 1.0. It's unnecessary in SAX 2.0. SAX2 apps should use XMLReaderFactory instead, which has the correct defaults you want in the first place. It would look something like this:
Pardon my ignorance here--but do the Xalan libraries that ship with the 1.4 JDK handle SAX 2.0?
Yes, they absolutely do. If you're using namespaces, XMLReader, ContentHandler, and so forth (and you really have to be for XSL) then you are already using SAX 2.
The Xalan home page  is ambiguous on their support of it, and I'm concerned if there would be compatability problems if we were to use it.
I'm not quite sure what you're seeing on that page that concerns you, but I don't see anything there that should prevent you from using XMLReaderFactory.
