You might also be able to use the XPath translate function if the character 
problems are widespread across different math tags (see 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#function-translate).

Maybe something like:

<xsl:template match="text()">
   <xsl:value-of select="translate(.,'X','Y')"/>
</xsl:template>

or maybe?

<xsl:template match="text()">
   <xsl:value-of select="translate(.,'&#xE084','&lt;')"/>
</xsl:template>
