I'm sorry, I don't really understand. I have encoding set to iso-8859-1 for
the xsl:stylesheet and the xsl:output elements, why would it replace it with
the UTF-8 values? How should go about doing this, with characters not valid
for the URL replaced with their HTTP/URL replacement (e.g. " " replaced with
"+", "+" with "%2B" etc)?

The processor is properly replacing the non-ASCII characters with their 
hex-encoded UTF-8 values.
