Its a bit silly mad question because depending on the browser it shows me
differents character with the same XSL code.
My IE has ISO West by default and it shows "?" character only when I change
after to UTF-8 and Netscape 7.1 has by default the same codification but
shows the correct character when I change to ISO-8859-15 codification.

I don't understand anything, I tried with this entity <!DOCTYPE
xsl:stylesheet [<!ENTITY euro "&#8364;">]> and with &#x20AC;
and I see always strange characters. I tried with XML Spy and I see always
the "?" character, changing encoding to ISO-8859-1 , ISO-8859-15 and UTF-8
using MSXML parser.
I tried to do a PHP (Dom) server transformation and I see the "â" character.
I notice that after my transformation my IE is in ISO West European
codification and when I change this manually I see exactly the "?"
character.

Here's my code :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [<!ENTITY nbsp "&#8364;">]>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html" encoding="ISO-8859-15"/>

I think it could be better change to the ancien money(Ptas.) !!! :-)

I'm not surprised -- you've the wrong entity -- it should be:
&#8364;  (&#x20AC;)

I found the euro character in ISO-8859-15 so I change my XML and XSL to this
encoding. I have now my xsl with entity references:
  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
   <!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [<!ENTITY euro "&#164;">]>
   <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
   <xsl:output method="html"/>

I put <xsl:text>&euro;</xsl:text> but it writes another character....

Any suggestions please?

Thanks a lot!!
Frank

And then if i use ENTITY references if I define for example <!DOCTYPE
xsl:stylesheet [<!ENTITY nbsp "&#160;">]>, it puts me  the #160 character
from the table I have specified in encoding attribute???
So, Is the set of characters important to the encoding attribute?
Spain works with ISO-8859-1 but I can't found the euro character. So, I must
change the table of characters???

Shows how to define an entity (change it to & euro ; )
and let you use it as you want.

    I hope anybody can help me with this silly question.
    I don't understand very well what kind of encoding I must
    utilice. I live in Spain and I read that I must utilice
    ISO-8859-1 characters and I put always in XML files the
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>  and in the XSL
    files when I want to escape HTML I put always <?xml version="1.0"
    encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output method="html"/>
    The problem is when I want to put some "especial"
    characters like "EUR" , non-breaking espaces, etc... I put in
    the XSL StyleSheet when I want to display "euro" character
    &euro; &#8364; but whith &euro; he tells me "Entity
    Reference not defined" and with &#8364; I see another character.
    Any suggestion, please?
