Thank you, we will change the stylesheet, and I will follow the bug for other news.  I did convert the code to s9api anyway, which seems to workaround the Issue.

Hi Peter,

Just to let you know we are currently investigating the problem you found, which is indeed a bug in Saxon 9.5.

Incidentally what led to this error is in the code snippet below from your stylesheet you pass empty sequence for the last 2 arguments of format-dateTime:

'<xsl:value-of select="format-dateTime(xs:dateTime(atom:updated), '[MNn] [D], [Y]', $lang, (), ())"/>'

I have now committed a fix in the area of format-dateTime. You could avoid this by using the 2 argument version of format-dateTime.

I am on the trail of another bug which is causing a crash in your stylesheet.

You can keep track of the bug issue at:

Kind regards,
