[jdom-interest] Tranforming   into hatted A

Hello David,

This happens when your transformed document is in UTF-8 encoding and the 
browser is usally set to ISO-8859-1/Windows 1252.  There are three 
things you can do.
1) Change your browser's default encoding to UTF-8
2) use <xsl:output  method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"> in your stylesheet
3) use iso-8859-1 encoding in your XML document


Kind regards,
