Given that most modern browsers are OK with utf16 anyway it's not clear
that you really need to change this, otherwise if you use
transformnodetoobject you can generate it in something other than utf16
in the first place.

This sounds highly suspicous, by use of character references you can
access the full unicode character set in XML and HTML whatever the
encoding of the file. In utf16 you can access all unicode characters as
character data there are not really any "UTF-16 characters" as unlike
latin1 or aski utf16 does not encode a subset of unicode.
