Well I can adjust the output encoding to whatever I want, for instance UTF-8
or ISO-8859-1. And yes I do this in the stylesheets output element.
However, the characters edv in the output only look fine IF and only if the
input XML document is encoded in ISO-8859-1. If it is, everything is fine
regardless of output encoding, it looks fine whichever I choose.

That is why it seems to me that IXSLProcessor only reads it input in that
encoding, and ignores the declaration in the XML document.
But you are convinced that IXSLProcessor follows the input encoding
specified in the XML?
