This is an allowed character in XML (and therefore XSLT) even though it has
no defined meaning in Unicode.

You can output the character by writing &#153; in your stylesheet.

You can influence how the character is output by selecting the output
encoding, e.g.
xsl:output encoding="iso-8859-1"; however, you can't force the processor to
use a decimal character reference rather than some equivalent

I suspect that the ~Y appeared because the processor produced correct UTF-8
output and you looked at it with something that doesn't understand UTF-8.
