You could use <xsl:output method="html" encoding="us-ascii"/>

This should solve most output encoding problems (assuming your XSL
processor supports US-ASCII, but most do). This way, &#160; will be output
as either &nbsp; or &#160; which all browsers recognize (I've not seen any
browser which does not recognize it). The drawback is, that all characters
which are not in US-ASCII are encoded as either HTML-Entities or numeric
