Sorry, I should have guessed this right away.  The problem isn't in "set",
it is in "echo".  Please see the mod_include docs with special attention
to the "encoding" attribute to "echo".  This was added a couple years ago
to reduce the chance of Cross-Site-Scripting in SSI pages.  You need to
turn off the encoding using echo.
