            Bug ID: 29831
           Summary: [FO31] fn:transform and serialization to string
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 3.1

  Target Milestone: ---

When serializing to a string, what serialization-options are applicable? And in
the case of a 1.0 processor, does disable-output-escaping come into play
(provided a processor supports it)?

Consider:

<xsl:value-of select="'&lt;br>'" disable-output-escaping="true" />

The output would be "<br>".

and: <xsl:value-of select="'&lt;br>'" disable-output-escaping="false" />

The output would be "&lt;br>"

Does the returned string contain '<', 'b', 'r', '>' ("<br>", and therefore
illegal XML), or does the string contain '&', 'l', 't', ';' , 'b', 'r', '>'
("&lt;br>" and therefore legal XML)?

And with respect to other output options:
- if non-UTF is specified, do we return expanded entities?
- if character-maps is specified, are they invoked (leading, again, to
potentially illegal XML)
- if HTML is specified, do we return the string for HTML, or a parsable XML
string?
