I'm using XSLT 2.0 and Saxon 9
Im trying to replace certain chars with entities like this:

<xsl:template match="text()">
	<xsl:value-of select="replace(replace(replace(replace(., 'C', '&#223;', 'i'), 'C$', '&#228;', 'i'), 'C<', '&#252;', 'i'), 'C6', '&#246;', 'i')" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>

It just doesn't seem to to anything. If i do this:

<xsl:template match="text()"/>

all the text from the document is gone so the template matches...it just doesn't replace anything :-/

Any ideas ?!

Well in an XML document like an XSLT stylesheet
is the same as writing
so you are replacing each character with itself with your code.
If you want to replace certain characters with numeric character references in the serialized output of an XSLT 2.0 transformation then you can achieve that with a character map:

  <xsl:character-map name="map1">
    <xsl:output-character character="C" string="&amp;#223;"/>

<xsl:output use-character-maps="map1"/>
