Something Jeni T wrote recently caught my eye: the
 oft-repeated admonition
to avoid the use of disable-output-escaping because it might
 not work in all

I know that's how the spec is written. I'm reasonably
 familiar (and in
agreement) with the other strong arguments against the use of
disable-output-escaping. But what came to mind today was
 this question:
*which* XSLT processors don't support
 disable-output-escaping? All the ones
I've used do support it, though I "don't get out much",
 having used only
xalan-j 1.0.1 and 2.2.D9, saxon 6.2.2 and 6.4.3, msxml 3.0
 (briefly) and
jd.xslt 1.0.9 and its successors. Are there notable XSLT
 processors "in the
wild" that really don't support disable-output-escaping?
