Yes, the transformation does run on the unix box after which I FTP to mainframe.

I have FTP set to ASCII. I am using <xsl:output-character> to replace
the latin-1 characters with the equivalent EBCDIC code 037 values.

The output from my transformation is in UTF-8. I have tried setting it
to ISO-8859-1. That didn't help either.
