Default xsl:output with encoding and UPPER case entity

 Dear All,

I came across a problem during using the saxon:character-representation="hex"

Problem:
I would like to convert all hex decimal entity alphabets to UPPER case , were as it result as small case.

Used XSLT:
<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="us-ascii" saxon:character-representation="hex" omit-xml-declaration="no" />

Observed Output:
#x201c;
#x201d;

Required Output:
#x201C;
#x201D;

Any help would be thank full.

Regards,
ROCXY

Saxon doesn't provide this level of control over the serializer, and you really can't expect it. If your output is destined for an XML parser then it will accept either. If it's destined for a human reader then they will understand either. If it's destined for a piece of software that isn't an XML parser, then there's a bad mistake in your application architecture - XML should always be processed using conformant XML parsers.
