Shows how to define an entity (change it to & euro ; )
and let you use it as you want.


    I hope anybody can help me with this silly question.
    I don't understand very well what kind of encoding I must 
    utilice. I live in Spain and I read that I must utilice 
    ISO-8859-1 characters and I put always in XML files the 
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>  and in the XSL 
    files when I want to escape HTML I put always <?xml version="1.0"
    <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
    <xsl:output method="html"/>
    The problem is when I want to put some "especial" 
    characters like "EUR" , non-breaking espaces, etc... I put in 
    the XSL StyleSheet when I want to display "euro" character 
    &euro; &#8364; but whith &euro; he tells me "Entity 
    Reference not defined" and with &#8364; I see another character.
    Any suggestion, please?
