Thanks Paul,

But I'm not sure I hear what you're saying - if I generated the characters
by copying and pasting from a Unicode font in Microsoft Word where did this
go wrong?

Is the only proper way to refer to characters in utf-8 as the character

You declared the encoding of your input XML to be utf-8, but it actually
isn't -- at least, not if you planned to put the two characters "á" and "°"
in it.  Try declaring it as ISO-8859-1.

Hi All,

Another encoding question.  My apologies, but the other threads didn't help
me.  I am transforming this xml: ( The special characters are an a with an
accent and then the degree sign )

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="Untitled2.xsl"?>
á °

with this xsl:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"/>
<xsl:template match="start">
        <xsl:value-of select=".">

and I get:

What character reference is the &#6192?  This is supposed to be ISO-8859-1
isn't it?  Then how come I can't seem to find the character code for 6192
decimal?  And also, what happened to the 2 distinct characters from the
source xml?

Any help is much appreciated,
Daniel Florian
