Re: Special Characters in IE 6
Presumably your 3rd party software is generating ISO-8859-1 encoding? Have you tried setting your output encoding attribute in the xsl:output element to ISO-8859-1 and getting rid of your meta literal result element? Let the xsl:output element do as much work as you can. You can set doctypes there, too.
