Consider using "Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0" or "Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0", 
depending on what MSXML version you have installed.

I think the problem is to Response.Write the result of transformNode, 
you should use transformNodeToObject and save to the Response object e.g.

<%@ Language="VBScript" %>
Option Explicit
Dim XmlDocument, XslDocument, ResultDocument
Set XmlDocument = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
XmlDocument.async = False
XmlDocument.Load Server.MapPath("test2004081202.xml")

Set XslDocument = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
XslDocument.async = False
XslDocument.Load Server.MapPath("test2004081201Xsl.xml")

Set ResultDocument = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
ResultDocument.async = False

Response.ContentType = "text/xml"

XmlDocument.transformNodeToObject XslDocument, ResultDocument Response

that should solve the encoding problem I think.
