Thanks for the info.  Based on that, given this stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output encoding="ISO-8859-1" method="xml"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<foo>&#150;</foo>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

The output differs between MSXML 3/4, Saxon 6.5.4 and Saxon 8.7.1.
The latter escapes the character back to #150, while the 3 xslt 1.0
processors all output the character itself.

I'm guessing this is due to xml 1.1 support in Saxon 8.7?
