Well, it's certainly bad news. I just tried what you suggested and no go.
But, my situation may be more complex than the average page.
I have XSP pages which pass information to an stylesheet that uses Xalan
extensions to grab values out of PropertyResourceBundles for localization.
The properties document has things like this:

_ADDITIONAL_DETAILS=Zus&auml;tzliche Details

I get the data out of the ResourceBundle by calling getString() on the
correct resourceBundle which returns say "Zus&auml;tzliche Details". Do you
think that has something to do with it?
