>From XSLT 1.0 spec "16.4 Disabling Output Escaping"

"It is an error for output escaping to be disabled for a text node that is
used for something other than a text node in the result tree. Thus, it is an
error to disable output escaping for an xsl:value-of or xsl:text element
that is used to generate the string-value of a comment, processing
instruction or attribute node"

E.g. Saxon has an extension saxon:disable-output-escaping which may be set
on the xsl:attribute element. Other than that - try and not use the entity -
I take it that someValue is not a character reference, right?
