Package: xalan
Version: 1.6-3

On my system, xalan 1.6 (this is the C++ version) produces the following
message, for any XSL and XML files I throw at it, including really basic

XMLException Type is: TranscodingException
Message is: An invalid multi-byte source text sequence was encountered

There are actually =no= multi-byte sequences in any of the files. Here
are some very simple files (from Doug Tidwell's XSLT book) that
demonstrate the problem (but it happens with everything I've tried):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  Hello, World!

  <xsl:output method="html"/>

  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="greeting"/>

  <xsl:template match="greeting">
          <xsl:value-of select="."/>

xalan-1.2 (from stable) works fine on my system.

I am running Debian 3.0 (with many packages from testing), kernel
2.4.19-powerpc and libc-2.3.2.
