Further to my previous response: you appear to be running the transformation
on a Unix box and then doing an FTP of the result to a mainframe.

Is the FTP in text mode or binary mode, that is, are you expecting the FTP to
do UTF8-to-EBCDIC conversion?

If you expect the FTP to do code conversion, then (a) you must configure it
correctly to do so, and (b) the output from your transformation must be in

If you don't expect the FTP to do code conversion, then (a) you need to
configure it so it does not do so, and (b) you need to generate the whole
output in EBCDIC encoding on the UNIX box, using an appropriate value for
<xsl:output encoding="..."/>
