Why do you care if it is entered by an entity reference or just directly
as character data, or a character reference?

Why not just match on all one-character mo (which is virtually the same
as matching on all mo)


If you are using xslt2 you could match on all mo in certain ranges eg
match="mml:mo[matches(.,[ *[&#ff;-&x10ffff;] *]"

which mo do you _not_ want to add the attribute for, that is probably an
easier set of elements to match.
