I am trying to transform special characters in an XML file using XSLT
and I am having trouble with it.

One of them that I am having trouble with is the degree symbol. The
encoding is set to ISO-8859-1 because the system that consumes the XML
is set to this encoding.

So, on my XSL, I use the xsl:character-map and have mapped degree to
&#176; But for some reason, when the XML is converted, I only see
gibberish in place of the degree symbol.

Degree - "C/B?B=

I also have similar problems with the middle dot, null and section symbols.

Any suggestions on this is greatly appreciated.

So what is the input encoding, what is the output encoding, do you make sure that the XML declaration is output if the output encoding is ISO-8859-1? How do you look at the transformation result when you get that gibberish?

Which Unicode character is the "degree" character you want to output?
Why do you need the character map?

Can you post minimal samples of input, XSLT, XML output you want and the one you get?
