I am having trouble getting the character &#8226; to output corrrectly using

I created a small XML test file as shown below. I then wrote the XSLT to
display @e_test1 and @e_test2
I used both MSMXL and SAXON and saved both results to a file. I opened the
respective files in both
IE and Netscape. The MSXML transform rendered the bullet (&#8226) correctly.
The SAXON transform produced
"gibberish" characters. Can anyone offer some help with this ??

<?xml version='1.0' encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="yes"  ?>
<?xml:stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="e_test.xsl"?>

<!DOCTYPE entity_test [
 <!ELEMENT entity_test  ANY  >
 <!ATTLIST entity_test e_test1  CDATA #IMPLIED>
 <!ATTLIST entity_test e_test2  CDATA #IMPLIED>

 <!ENTITY bullet  "&#38;#8226;">


<entity_test e_test1="&#8226;"  e_test2="&bullet;" />
