I'm using Saxon 22.214.171.124J with Java 1.6.0_17 64-bit and with or without Xerces 2.9.1 under Vista and have an XSL 2.0 transform with:
<xsl:output method="text" media-type="text/plain" encoding="us-ascii" />
when I run the transform I get the following error:
Output character not available in this encoding (decimal 697)
I thought that when you specified us-ascii as an output encoding and a character was outside the encoding, then the XSL processor was suppose to render a character reference or was I dreaming?
But you have asked for text/plain, not for xml or html. text/plain does not know any character references.
