disable-output-escaping (and it seems also charater-map) only passes 
serializer hints along with the actual XML. With a second transformation 
following the one using disable-output-escaping these hints get lost. 
That's why you should not use this "feature" in Cocoon. It only works in 
a non-streaming environment, where you serialize after each transformation.
