Hello transformers!

I am trying to set stylesheet parameters containing national characters
using the --stringparam of xsltproc. This fails, and the chars are
replaced with space.

My locale is sv_SE.iso-8859-1,the stylesheet and the doc is also encoded
using iso-8859-1.

I have also tried using #&149;-style encoding of the offending chars,
but no entity expansion is done.

Using utf-8 however produces the correct result. It took some time to
figure out, so I'd appreciate if somone would add this info to the

So if the man page said something like:

--stringparam name value

              Pass  a  paramenter  of  name  name and value value
              where value is a string rather than a node  identi­
              fier.(Note: The string must be utf-8.)

Would that be correct?
