numeric character references are not actually entity references.
The XSLt engine can not see whether the original input used character
data or numeric or entityu references, as all these forms are resolved
by the xml parser before it hands the input to xslt.

If you use an output encoding (US-ASCII or iso-8599-1 ) that does not
contain the characters then the system will automatically encode the
characters using numeric references or (perhaps) in teh html or xhtml
output method, using named entity references.

That is the most portable way. If you really want to use a character map
to do this, then you can 


and use w3c-entity-names in your xsl:output as that stylesheet defines a
host of entity names for common characters.
