The conversion of &#160; to a non-breaking space is done by an XML
parser. When you pass a string as a parameter to the stylesheet, it is
never processed by an XML parser, so XML character references are not
substituted. You will have to work out how to generate a string
containing this character in your chosen programming language: if you
are using Java, you can write it as "\u00a0".
