XSLT will not drop or replace characters.

If the character is in a place where a character reference may be used,
the character will be serialised as a character reference (& # 1234 ;) 
If it is at a place where a character ref can not be used, (eg an
element name, or in a comment, or anywhere in the text output method,
then that's an error) The processor may avoid these errors by instead
using utf8 or iutf16 (which can encode all characters).
