Hello: I have an issue with representing EBCDIC code 37 in XSLT. I am converting an XML file to a flat file and ftping from unix to mainframe. I am not sure where to start debugging this issue. Here is the issue: I have latin-1 special characters like the plusminus sign, the registered trademark, fraction one half that I need to convert to EBCDIC code 37 values. I am using xslt 2.0. So I have an output character map defined for these special characters. So I have: <xsl:output-character character="." string="¯"/> As you can see from my example, I have tried the exact EBCDIC value. When this converts into a text file which is what I am doing, I get this strange gibberish character in the output -B.. But when I view it on the mainframe server, it is converted to a period(.) I have tried using encoding in utf-8 and iso-8859-1. Nothing works. Is there anything I can do in XSLT 2.0 to convert these characters into the right format that mainframe accepts? Any tips? Thanks.
