This isn't well-formed XML. You can't refer to entities unless you first
declare them.

Why are you mapping a character to itself? It just gives the serializer a
lot more work to do.
Perhaps you meant

> <xsl:output-character character="&#966;"
> string="&amp;#966;"/>

which would cause the serializer to output & # 9 6 6 ; (6 characters)

But even if that's what you want, wouldn't it be just as good to specify
<xsl:output encoding="us-ascii">?
