Two points. Firstly, the encoding only affects what happens when you "view
source" on the HTML, it doesn't affect what is displayed by the browser.
Secondly, Xalan (at v2) uses the TrAX API, which allows you to set output
properties such as encoding from the application (using setOutputProperty()
on the Transformer object). This gets round the fact that the encoding
specified in xsl:output must be a constant.
