Thank You Michael and Ken,

Please excuse my lack of knowledge on numerical character references. I want
to preserve &#160; or &#xA0; as  &#160; or &#xA0;. Currently, as an example,
&#160; will output into my resulting file as a space, but when the resulting
xsl file is used to transform the xml file to FO it prints out a bad character
"E". I have nailed down the issue to when I convert my stylesheet into one.

I hope this explains my issue. I appreciate all the help.

you want to preserve the particular representation of the non-breaking space
character using the numeric character reference '&#x00A0;'?

OK? What about '&#160;'?

I've misunderstood.
