RE: Using in Stylesheets
One thing to be careful about - we've had problems with some Mac browsers deciding to display character   as a cruciform rather than as a hard space. I've resorted to the following (which works when output format is HTML): <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&nbsp;</xsl:text> Which resolves to in the output. This isn't a good solution to use if you want your output well-formed, but with the 'html' output format it works for me (MSXML3).
