  At the XSLT level, no. XSLT works only on XML information set where
entities have been substitued with their repacement value, and for
&nbsp; that would be the character code point #160.

  &nbsp; and &#160; are equivalent in HTML, so why do you want one
instead of the other ? Why would people have to use &nbsp; which depends
at least theorically on DTD support instead of using &#160; which is
the direct unanbigous reference to the code point you want (i.e. 
non-breaking-space) ... I see no logic behind your request.
