So I converted writing the textarea out using CDATA sections and still
the tag is collapsed!  I was certain that this would not be the case,
so that is a little confusing.  So then I thought maybe I can sneak
the &nbsp; into the output in my closing textarea like this:

<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"><![CDATA[&nbsp;</textarea>]]></xsl:text>

And this does work.  Although, the non-breaking space character isn't
really what I want either, I really need <textarea></textarea> with no
white space and the tag not collapsed.

So the dilemna with the encoding is this:  the master stylsheet is
generating either an FO or HTML.  I've been writing everything out to
FO as UTF-8, so now I would need to switch between the two, but can
not, not without calling two different templates, one to produce HTML
and the other to produce FO.  As is, the system calling the stylesheet
is passing a param specifiying either of the two output types.

I did test US-ACII encoding and that works great two.  So given the
nature of my system (1 stylesheet) am I stuck writing out the textarea
the long way as I have?
