RE: [xsl] imode entity problem for pictographic entities.. very annoying

if I use &#59087; dirctly I get an unknow entity error, or it replaces
"&#59087;" with "?". It supposed to be an pictographic icon of a mobile

Of course XSLT/XML recorgnises all the other 'regular' entity refs (&#120)
etc, but not these addional ones for the imode phones. Any ideas where I can
add some reference to the additional entities, or some way to let this exact
string "&#59087;" to the browser itself???

That's wrong in the first place. Just use "&#59087;" whereever you need that
