You might be content but I'm not! It's a new bug, 5.1/018 for future
reference. Fixed in next version.
The failure actually occurs if the attribute value contains any non-ASCII
character, however expressed, and it also applies to other instructions
whose content generates text, e.g. xsl:message, xsl:comment, and
xsl:processing-instruction. It's all due to the confusion between "utf-8"
and "UTF8"... in different Java VMs.

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.
