iso-8859-1 (0-255), not just ascii (0-127), but yeah, it's not a practical
solution for dealing with all of Unicode, which is why I said that if you used
this approach, you'd have to settle on a reasonable subset to support.

Right. The only option I can see is to create and use an extension function,
which I think you said you didn't consider viable?
If portability is not an issue, you could use <msxsl:script>, and perhaps
use http://www.macchiato.com/unicode/UTF.js as a starting point...
