Default character entity into numeric character entity

Hi..

I am Transforming an XML file with XSLT. The following part is in my XML File

<p>It&apos;s bright and sunny at Fort Necessity, but you&apos;re not interested in the weather. The Pennsylvania woods around you look dark and dangerous. Any minute now, your small fort may be attacked. You&apos;re scared, but you will fight to keep France from getting control of this land. There is a shout as one of the other soldiers in your group runs into sight. &ldquo;It&apos;s the French!&rdquo; he yells. &ldquo;We&apos;re surrounded!&rdquo;</p>

and i want to Transform the xml file with XSLT as

<p>It#x0027;s bright and sunny at Fort Necessity, but you#x0027;re not interested in the weather. The Pennsylvania woods around you look dark and dangerous. Any minute now, your small fort may be attacked. You#x0027;re scared, but you will fight to keep France from getting control of this land. There is a shout as one of the other soldiers in your group runs into sight. #x201C;It#x0027;s the French!#x201D; he yells. #x201C;We#x0027;re surrounded!#x201D;</p>

Please Advice...

Thanks in Advance,

srkumar

XSLT is a language that processes XML at the logical level, not at the lexical level. At the logical level, "'", "&apos;", "#x27;", and "#x0027;" are completely equivalent representations of the same character, and XSLT can't distinguish between them either on input or on output.

If you need to manipulate XML at the lexical level (and I can't see why you should need to) then you need a lower-level tool.
