That's the default in docbook

http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/CharEncoding.html (re XML, not
DocBook specifically):
    If the encoding is not specified, then UTF-8 encoding is assumed.
(That's Sage Hill, writing about DocBook 4-something; the official

About DocBook 5 (from http://docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/ch02.html):
    If your document uses XML 1.0 and an encoding of either utf-8
    or utf-16, the XML declaration is not required.

<xsl:output method="html"

This indeed uses iso-8859-1 by default unless you tweak it.
