RE: Problems generating w-circumflex character for HTM
Sounds as if you are generating HTML output encoded in UTF-8 but the browser is displaying it under the impression that it is in iso-8859-1. Firstly check (with a hex editor) that the HTML is indeed in UTF-8 and that it has a <meta> tag saying so. Then try to check what the HTTP headers say when the web server delivers the document (or is your browser reading it from a local file?). Changing web server and browser configurations should fix the problem (but don't ask me exactly how). The alternative is to try producing the HTML output in iso-8859-1 encoding, which you can do by adding an encoding attribute to the xsl:output element on (preferably) the top-level stylesheet module. Incidentally, all the output produced by your stylesheet is governed by the xsl:output properties with highest import precedence - there's no linkage between the module from which the output was generated and the module in which the xsl:output declaration occurs.
