In case you're using MSXML3 and do not have to use some special
encoding (different from UTF-8), then the easiest way to "make that go
away" is to use:

<xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>

Otherwise, if you have specified an encoding in your xml declaration
and need that preserved in the generated output, then with MSXML3 this
is rather complicated:

1. Use transformNodeToObject() instead of transformNode()

2. On the resulting XMLDOMDocument object issue the save() method.

This is really a bug, or to put it more politely -- must not be so much
more difficult than using any other XSLT processor.
