I sort of remember some encoding issues; something about MSXML having insisting on using UTF-16 for output using certain API bindings.
It does have a preference for utf16 because one of its methods outputs to some string type thats always utf16 string, but that isn't a conformance issue: an xslt1 system is explictly allowed to ignore the encoding hint on xsl:output. A common "problem" people have with msxml is that they output the whole result as a msxml dom and that dom is then later serialised by dom serialisation methods (eg .xml), in which case all of the serialisation is outside xslt's control and xsl:output is completely ignored. This again is conformant (if confusing) and also happens with other systems that allow the in-memory result tree to be passed down some pipeline.
