RE: Special Characters in URLs
I'm sorry, I don't really understand. I have encoding set to iso-8859-1 for the xsl:stylesheet and the xsl:output elements, why would it replace it with the UTF-8 values? How should go about doing this, with characters not valid for the URL replaced with their HTTP/URL replacement (e.g. " " replaced with "+", "+" with "%2B" etc)?
The content of the document should be encoded in ISO 8859-1, yes. But a URI is interpreted by a URI resolver such as a Web server, not an XML parser, so the rules for encoding are different. The rules for URI encoding are described in RFC 2718 (§2.2.5) and in the W3C internationalization guidelines (er... somewhere).
IE 5, at least, interprets this correctly, as does (IIRC) Mozilla 5 and Netscape 6, and Opera 4.
