If the document really does contain the Unicode character with codepoint
0x02, then it's not a well-formed XML document, and you won't be able to
read it from XSLT or from anything else that's designed to process XML. You
need  to correct the program that created the document so that it outputs
well-formed XML.

The other possibility is that the document contains some other character
which is being misread as codepoint 0x02 because the parser is using the
wrong encoding, for example because the XML declaration is incorrect.
