Hi everyone,

Problem 1:
I'm having trouble figuring out why my special characters are converting
from numeric-hex unicode to numeric-decimal unicode, e.g. from &#x00A0;
in my input XML to &#160; in my output XML. My customer requires
numeric-hex unicode. I suspect I'm missing something really obvious, but
nothing that I've found via google has helped me solve the problem.

This is the xsl:output line I'm using:
         <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="us-ascii"
omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>

Is there something else I should use for the encoding attribute value?
Or am I missing something somewhere else?

If you are using Saxon, you may use the saxon:character-representation serialization parameter in the xsl:output declaration:

Problem 2 has been addressed in-depth by Graydon already.
