I would like the encoding of the output XML of my XSLT stylesheet to match

As Ken points out you can't get this information from the XSLT
processor. However, one could easily write an extension function to
examine the input document directly to find the encoding declaration. I
don't know of anyone who's done this but it wouldn't be hard to do.
