Thanks for all your help so far!

where you needed to this.

That's for filtering nodes in the DOM being transformed, right? If I need to have a < added to my output by my XSL I can set up:

<xsl:output use-character-maps="html-stuff" />
<xsl:character-map name="html-stuff">
  <xsl:output-character character="&#xE001;" string="&lt;"/>

Then anywhere I use &#xE001; in my XSL I get < in my output?

Can I map B+ to < if I'm confident that my XML won't contain B+?

Can I map B$ to "some really long string I'm sick of typing" or is that just going to far? (I'm really trying to give Wendell heart attacks here)
