escaping entities
Non-Ascii characters in a URI should be escaped using the %HH convention,
rather than using XML escaping.

XSLT 2.0 provides a function escape-uri() to achieve this.

In 1.0, it happens automatically when you use the HTML serialization method
if the URI appears in an attribute such as <a href="..."> that is known to
require a URI as its value.
