yes. If the output is in utf16 (which it often is with msxml whatever
you request in xsl:output.

this is why the XSLt spec specifies that the system add the meta 
element: the  stylesheet author can not do this accurately as (s)he has
no direct control over the acyual encoding in teh output, xsl:output is
just a hint.
