I do it this way...

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
       exclude-result-prefixes="msxsl user">

<xsl:output method="html" indent="no" />

<msxsl:script language="JavaScript" implements-prefix="user">
	function encodeString(str_in) {
		return escape(str_in);


<xsl:template match="Blah">
 <xsl:element name="a">
  <xsl:attribute name="id"><xsl:value-of
