We fixed the problem.  Had to change the command within the script to the 
following.

Old Saxon call within script logic

    java -cp $SAXON_JAR net.sf.saxon.Transform 
-s:$FinesrvDataDir/Library_Invoice_Interface.xml 
-xsl:$FinesrvCronDir/LibrXML2CSV_stylesheet.xsl 
-o:$FinesrvDataDir/Library_Invoice_Interface.csv

1)  New Saxon call within script logic
/usr/java5/bin/java -cp $SAXON_JAR net.sf.saxon.Transform 
-s:$FinesrvDataDir/Library_Invoice_Interface.xml 
-xsl:$FinesrvCronDir/LibrXML2CSV_stylesheet.xsl 
-o:$FinesrvDataDir/Library_Invoice_Interface.csv

2)  We also had to change the shell from "sh" to "ksh"

For some reason the Systems group indicated that the cron job was 
overriding the java class path so in the script itself we had to change it 
to the above line of code so it is executing the proper java and it now 
works.  Because the class path has all kinds of other paths Systems did 
not want to try and figure out what the problem was.  They wanted to make 
sure I was using the Java I needed so this is how we corrected it.
