If ASCII is what you want, then why not specify the encoding:

  <xsl:output method="text" encoding="USASCII"/>

I use this often for Japanese HTML pages where the "standard" is iso-2022-jp:

  <xsl:output method="html" encoding="ISO-2022-JP" indent="yes"/>

I imagine that Japanese man pages would need the same thing rather than UTF-8 

(Note:  I know that the above method="html" works with an encoding.  I 
haven't confirmed or disproven that it works with method="text".)
