The difference is that I am not doing the transformation in the
browser. I am using MSXML through a VB program to produce the HTML on
my computer only.
The HTML is then given (mailed or on disc) to someone else to view in
IE. The only thing that needs d-o-e is MSXML. I understand that this
is just my specific circumstances, and in others it may not be a good

Although I still assert that in my circumstances the d-o-e solution
works, I have now changed it to use simply &#160 and give a
Content-Type meta tag. When using iso-8859-1 this works, but if I try
UTF-8 IE seems to still have some recognition problems. Not a problem
though, iso-8859-1 is fine for me.

Thanks everybody for the comments, especially Jeni's monster
explanation. Hopefully this can draw to an end soon?

groovy baby,
