Thanks for the help, Chris. 

Yes, the URIs are interpreted by the Web Server/Web browser but I need them
to be generated correctly by the XSLT processor -- to comply with the
HTTP-standard (e.g. no white space in URLs). Is there a way to achieve this?

The content of the document should be encoded in ISO 8859-1, yes.  But a 
URI is interpreted by a URI resolver such as a Web server, not an XML 
parser, so the rules for encoding are different.  The rules for URI 
encoding are described in RFC 2718 (§2.2.5) and in the W3C 
internationalization guidelines (er... somewhere).

IE 5, at least, interprets this correctly, as does (IIRC) Mozilla 5 and 
Netscape 6, and Opera 4.
