If your file is EBCDIC then you shouldn't declare the encoding as
latin 1:
'iso-8859-1'

You could declare it as EBCDIC but then there's no guarantee that the
system will understand that. (Althouggh it's not guaranteed to
understand iso-8859-1 either).

probably Michael will tell you adding a new supported encoding only
means writing half a line of java and compiling some new class
somewhere, but personally I'd probably cheat and read it as latin 1 as
you have and then use translate() or replace() to fix up the EBCDIC
to iso-8859-1 conversion:


   <xsl:variable name="input-text" as="xs:string"
select="translate(unparsed-text($input, 'iso-8859-1'), 'ebcdic codes',
'ascii codes')"/>
