I think that's an excellent suggestion, and I can't see much wrong with the <?ctrl 1f?> idea. (Purists will object that there's no guarantee that the name "ctrl" is unique. We could say that the PI name should be the prefix of an in-scope namespace with some unique namespace URI. But purists will probably object to that too). Note that James Clark in his xt product came up with a way of representing control characters in the result tree of a transformation, so that they could be generated in the serialized result file when using method="text". If there's enough consensus, we could perhaps give the idea a home by making it a standard feature of method="text" in XSLT. Mike Kay
