In conclusion I must either change the output encoding of the sender to
the receiver's expected one or change the expectation of the receiver.
This seems to be really error prone - how did the world work without
Thanks for all answers.

How are text files marked as UTF-8?
Ordinary text files have no way of indicating their encoding. XML document
entities and parsed general entities have encoding declarations for this
purpose, and XML parsers also accept external declarations of encoding, such
as what might be obtained from a transport protocol (HTTP response
Content-Type header, for example) by whatever is feeding the entity's bytes to
The sender and receiver of the bytes that constitute a file intended for
processing as textual data must be in agreement on what encoding was used to
produce those bytes. How you do that in your non-XSLT related application is a
matter you should take up in a more apporpriate forum.
