Not Saxon, which is one of many reasons I use it most of the time.  MSXML3
and 4, at least as invoked in XML Cooktop, does have this problem.
msxsl.exe, which is a thin wrapper for msxml that Microsoft used to
distribute (I do not know if it still does), does not have the problem.

You could say that this problem reflects a poor choice of default settings,
but that does not help a random user, as Tony said.
