The problem with NN 4.x is that it mistakenly considers numeric character references to mean characters in the current encoding. That is, ¡ will be an inverted exclamation mark if interpreting the HTML as iso-8859-1, but will be a Cyrillic capital letter IO if iso-8859-5. This is entirely wrong behavior. - Mike _____________________________________________________________________________ mike j. brown, software engineer at | xml/xslt: http://skew.org/xml/ webb.net in denver, colorado, USA | personal: http://hyperreal.org/~mike/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
