Hi Nancy,
I can't duplicate your problem.  When I create a xref whose
linkend points to a refsect1, my generated HTML in English
using the 1.60.1 XSL stylesheets looks like this:

<a href="#myrefsect1" title="My refsect title">the section called &#8220;My
refsect title&#8221;</a>

That is, there are quotes around the title using the Unicode
quote character.

When I change the document element to have a lang="ja"
attribute, I get:

<a href="#myrefsect1" title="My refsect title">My refsect title&#38917;</a>

The numeric character after the title is Japanese, but I
don't know what it means.  

In both cases, the generated text comes from the gentext
files en.xml or ja.xml in the 'common' subdirectory of the
distribution, in the section of the files with context name
"section-xref".  For example:

<l:template name="refsect1" text="%t&#38917;"/>

Are you using a customization of the stylesheet that changes
the behavior of xref or modifies the gentext?
