I'm sorry, I don't really understand. I have encoding set to iso-8859-1 for
the xsl:stylesheet and the xsl:output elements, why would it replace it with
the UTF-8 values? How should go about doing this, with characters not valid
for the URL replaced with their HTTP/URL replacement (e.g. " " replaced with
"+", "+" with "%2B" etc)?
The content of the document should be encoded in ISO 8859-1, yes. But a
URI is interpreted by a URI resolver such as a Web server, not an XML
parser, so the rules for encoding are different. The rules for URI
encoding are described in RFC 2718 (§2.2.5) and in the W3C
internationalization guidelines (er... somewhere).
IE 5, at least, interprets this correctly, as does (IIRC) Mozilla 5 and
Netscape 6, and Opera 4.
