The encoding attribute of the <xsl:output> element is set as a string.
[Actually, a case-insensitive ASCII string either a charset registered with
IANA, or an ASCII string starting with "x-"].

This means that you can't take a parameter and expect its value to be
evaluated by the processor. 

Mike - is the fact that SAXON doesn't report an error a bug? MSXML falls

Error Type:
msxml3.dll (0x80004005)
System does not support the specified encoding

Subject: [xsl] Can I parameterise encoding in xsl:output

Hi, I have the following simple XSL file

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<xsl:template match="/">


Given, the following input XML 
<?xml version="1.0" ?>

The output at least from 4xslt is

      <META HTTP-EQUIV='Content-Type' CONTENT='text/html; charset=UTF-8'>

I am looking to generate output in different languages via the use of
parameters and with the source files having appropiate XML fragments,

however as such with the above tag generated needs to be parameterised else
browsers will get confused

I thought of doing this

<xsl:param name="enc" select="'iso-8859-1'"/>

but this doesn't seem to work. 4xslt bombs out whereas Saxon 6.0.2 gives
the following
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/xml; charset=$enc">

Any suggestions ?
