If I do
    <xsl:element name="input">
     <xsl:attribute name="name">name</xsl:attribute>
     <xsl:attribute name="type">text</xsl:attribute>
     <xsl:attribute name="value">
      <xsl:value-of select="@name"  />
and @name contains a numeric Unicode entity, Saxon chokes.  On the other hand, if I do
    <input name="name" type="text" value="{@name}"/>
it works fine.  Thanks to Steve Tinney for the hint.  Mind you, I don't understand why this is so, but I'm content.
