Hope you had a nice week-end!!! I tried to take the meta stuff out and only put an xsl:output element, and I now have something like this in my xsl: <?xml version="1.0" encoding=" ISO-8859-1"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> <xsl:output method="html" encoding="ISO-8859-1"/> <xsl:template match="/"> <html> <body> <xsl:apply-templates select=".//RR_row"/> </body> </html> </xsl:template> Which generates this HTML file <html><body><p><i><b>AEBI PHILIPP, Assoziierte(r) Professor(in)</b></i></p><p>Festkörperphysik</p> <p /> <p style="margin-left:36.0pt"><i>Publications</i></p><p style="margin-left:72.0pt">A.

And about the double escaping, the problem is that these are saved as is (“) in the database (via a web application). So the problem seems not to be with the transformation... But I still don't understand why these 'caracters' are displayed correctly while querying the data directly from the web application, and not while displaying the html generated from xml in a browser.
