To all,
Sorry my first message got scrambled.
I thought I had this working but seem to have a problem in Oxygen 11 using Saxon 6.5 in that the nbsp entity is not being recognized in the stylesheet. Works OK if defined in the XML instance. What am I doing wrong?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The XSL<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [<!ENTITY nbsp "&#160;">  ]>
<wrapper>This is a&nbsp; sample</wrapper>

I can't see anything wrong (other than what I assume is a bad mailer problem eating all the spaces between attributes) , but why do it anyway, &nbsp; isn't any easier to type than &#160; and the latter doesn't require all the doctype setup.
