Special Characters in IE 6

special characters in ie
I have a problem with special characters not displaying properly in IE 6.  I
use numeric character codes, such as &#160; for a space, and they all
display as a question mark in IE 6.  They all worked fine in IE 5.5, so I'm
not sure what is different now.

The encoding I am using in my XSL is:

	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

	<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
version="1.0" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
	<xsl:template match="/">
				<meta http-equiv="content-type"
content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

If I include 


in my namespace, it gets rid of the question marks, but then the special
characters that don't use a numeric code, such as apostrophes, appear as
garbage characters.  I can't find the right combination to get rid of both
these problems at the same time.

I should say that I don't have control over the XML, as it is generated by a
third-party product.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
