xsl:attribute-set needs to be at the top level i.e. a direct child of xsl:stylesheet. When you want to apply it on an element, you need to use xsl:element's use-attribute-sets attribute to place the attribute set in there. Example:

<xsl:stylesheet ...><xsl:attribute-set name="font"><xsl:attribute name="fname">Arial</xsl:attribute><xsl:attribute name="size">14px</xsl:attribute><xsl:attribute name="color">red</xsl:attribute></xsl:attribute-set><xsl:template match="/"><xsl:element name="div" use-attribute-sets="font">div's content</xsl:element></xsl:template></xsl:stylesheet>

It all works fine for me.You should save your files as UTF-8 (as I did), and ensure that your server serves them with UTF-8 too. If they are saved as ANSI, it won't work.Opening notepad, copy your XML from this topic (the one you currently have is already damaged), click "Save as", and in the type, choose "All Files", and then (this is the key part), on the menu below that, select "UTF-8", and then click "Save".Do the same for the XSLT file.You could also try to represent each character as an entity, but that would increase a lot the size of your XML, so use it only as a last resort. I mean use something like:

<pronunciation> & #160; </pronunciation>

( & #160; is the entity for non-breakable space)but replace the entity number with the actual number of the character, and remove the space between "&" and "#" (I've added it because this board interprets entities).
