Default text output problems


I have the following : <xsl:text> x > 0 </xsl:text>
Output : x &gt; 0

How do i force it to output '>' symbol. I have set the output to 'text' (and saxon is always putting an <?xml ...> header !!! is it a bug ?).

If you have set xsl:output method="text" then Saxon will not escape special characters and will not output an XML declaration. I can only speculate that either (a) you xsl:output declaration is wrong (you haven't shown it), or (b) you're not using the Saxon serializer - perhaps you're sending the output to a DOM and serializing that with the DOM serializer. Wild guesses, I know, but with so little information one has to speculate.
