Encoding problem

I have Unicode numeric entities representing foreign-language characters.  The XSL I'm using sets output to HMLT and encoding to iso-8859-1, which works for everything except one case: when I try to take XML data with one of these entities and output it in the "value" attribute of an HTML input element, my parser (Saxon) complains that the output character is not available in this encoding.  Shows up fine in select boxes, textareas, anything else.  It won't even work to create hidden input.
Any ideas appreciated, with apologies in advance since it'll inevitably turn out to be something simple that I don't know.   I tried to check the list archives at mulberrytech but they seem to be crashed.
