I'd think so too -- though XT isn't a parser, so it'd be some parser
that you'd previously have configured XT to use, perhaps XP.

That looks fine to me. Looks like the new parser is stripping out the
single quotes, so %filename; expands incorrectly. I'd try a different
validating parser -- specifically Sun's, which does well on the OASIS
tests. (It's the only validating Java parser which does at this time,
so far as I know.)
