Well, as posted on this list last Friday, Saxon-SA is the first and so far
the only processor to report results against all the tests in the new test
suite published in November 2006. Hopefully others will follow so that a
more detailed picture of conformance can be built up. But regular expression
handling appears to be by far the weakest area of the test suite (and it
wouldn't surprise me if it turned out to be the area in which otherwise
excellent processors fall short: though that's conjecture).
