I use the xsltproc tool.

You can set the output encoding using <xsl:output/>

But it is not guaranteed that the processor supports anything different from UTF-8/UTF-16.

Also note, the first 127 codepoints when encoded as ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8 are exactly equal. Only ISO 128 (sometimes euro sign, but you may see something different: ) and above are treated differently.

Note that ISO-8859-1 is an order of magnitude smaller then UTF-8, so you may end up with missing or replaced characters (not sure what they will be replaced with though, when they don't exist) in the output stream.
