CDATA _only_ affects the meaning of < and & so it is doing nothing in
your source file (and XSLT will see teh same input whether or not it is
By "special chars" you seem to mean accented letters but these are not
"special" in XML  they are just normal character data.

Similarly, disable-output-escaping, when it works at all only affects
the escaping of characters that need to be escaped, which typically is
again just < and &.

That said, it might be that your posting has been mangled by an
over-zealous mail system (this would not be the first time)/

Your posting (by the time it arrived here at least)
claimed to be in ASCII:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

But your sample of your "bad" output
  results in:
  Aparthotel Gvtzens
which looks OK on my latin-1 screen, although strictly speaking isn't

the "correct output"
arrives here as

  then Iam getting the correct output: 
  Aparthotel GC6tzens

Which here looks like an accented A and a paragraph sugn, but is
probably the right utf8 for that letter.

Unless you used entity references in the unput eg  "& ouml;" then using
a CDATA section around this string should make no difference at all to
the output.
