Syntax

	TEXT
</xsl:text> 

Required Attributes

None.

Optional Attributes

disable-output-escaping (Netscape does not serialize the result of transformation - the "output" below - so this attribute is essentially irrelevant in context. To output html-entities, use numerical values instead, eg &#160; for &nbsp;)
Specifies whether special characters are escaped when written to the output. The available values are "yes" or "no". If "yes" is set, for example, the character > is output as >, not as &gt;.
