Wow. Seems replacing my existing XML declaration with <?xml version='1.0'
encoding="UTF-8"?> fixed the little problem!

Nice one cutlass.

Thanks to everyone else as well.

no no;  &copy means nothing to the browser natively. if u are using
entities; your &copy; entity should be properly defined in a dtd or
doctype tag.

using &#169 should give u the correct copyright symbol

first off does the following listing work in your browser


it should, if it doesn't something wrong with your browser ( maybe char
encoding ).

some steps to do
a) to make sure your output is html use the <xsl:output method="html"/>
b) make sure your encoding attribute of xml and xsl is correct, set to
utf-8 or iso-8859-1
c) your can define doctype-public and doctype-system in xsl:output tag
d) goto faq
