Which XSLT processor are you using?  Is there any output pertaining to
the files that aren’t included?

If I understand correctly, including the entity in your stylesheet’s
DOCTYPE won’t have any effect.  It will need to be defined in the
files that use it themselves.

Swapping it out for a numeric character reference (‘&#160;’ or ‘&#xA0’
instead of ‘&nbsp;’) should solve the problem, I think, if you can do
that instead.
