well it's probably quicker to use a tool treating the file as plain text (since the unicode normalisation should not break the xml)
but since you asked on xsl-list (and I don't know off hand of a text normaliser) then you can have an identity template and templates

<xsl:template match="text()">
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-unicode(.)"/>

<xsl:template match="@*"> <xsl:attribute name="{name()}" select="normalize-unicode(.)"/> </xsl:template>


That solution (and Martin Honnen's) will only normalize the content of attribute and text nodes. They won't normalize element and attribute names, or comments and processing instructions.

I would be inclined to do this at the serialization level:

<xsl:output method="xml" normalization-form="NFC"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
