You have several options
1) Create the property file in UTF-8 and use native2ascii to handle the
conversion of any character that's not in ASCII to Java's /u-escapes.
2) Use a Java program, not XSLT. JAXB will unmarshal this simple structure
easily, and you can write a property file using JDK API.
3) Convert to XML according to Java's spec for property files in XML, and
loadFromXML
4) Add a conversion of characters greater than 0x7F to \uHHHH to your XSLT.
(I've tried this, but the code is so clumsy I daren't post it here.)
