Because this kind of thing isn't very readable, you might find
it helpful to create a global variable in your stylesheet:

<xsl:variable name="tab" select="'&#09;'" />

and then use value-of to use it

<xsl:value-of select="$tab" />

If you were really keen, you could declare an entity in
your stylesheet's internal DTD.

<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
  <!ENTITY tab   "&#009;">
]>

and then just use &tab; everywhere - probably the cleanest solution.
(Not tested.)
