	Which is expected, if you view an EBCDIC-encoded XML file with
	an application that assumes ASCII-based encoding.  Try to upload
	the resulting file using FTP /binary/ mode to the mainframe and
	check if the file is still unreadable /there./

	(Alternatively, or perhaps complementarily, use an
	EBCDIC-capable application to view the resulting file locally.)

	There /may/ be a problem if /either/ this program or the FTP
	server assume that the input is ASCII, because the characters
	such as PLUS-MINUS SIGN are /not/ representable in ASCII.

	One solution is to configure either the FTP client or FTP server
	to /correctly/ convert UTF-8 to EBCDIC.  The other is to
	configure the XSLT implementation (with <xsl:output />) to
	output EBCDIC, and send the result to the target host /without/
	any encoding conversion (i.B e., using FTP binary mode.)
