Absolutely, but I'm getting "A-hat" characters in the xhtml
output...because my server is sending it as ISO-8859-1. If I can
change the input xml doc to use ISO-8859-1 and also customize the
xsl:output to output ISO-8859-1 --- if I inderstand correctly, that
*should* fix my problem, right? without need to refactor all the
entities in en.xml to literals.

Sorry for dragging this thread on forever, it is a problem I didn't
understand last time I dealt with it at an academic level, and still
am not -- seeing as how it is nearly the exact same scenario (xml/xslt
to xhtml). I have never had this problem before when hand-coding.
