RE: escaping/entities on the fly?
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.
