Preserving whitespace between nodes - XSLT
Hi, I have an XSLT question that I'm unable to answer, and I'm starting to think there may not be an answer. Before I give up, allow me to consult your expertise. I'm trying to preserve significant whitespace between element nodes during transformation. For example, if I had some XML like: <x>text <x>text</x> <x>text</x> text</x> (note the space in the middle, between nodes) ...and some kind of simple transform like: <xsl:template match="*"> <x> <xsl:apply-templates/> </x> </xsl:template> ... I end up with: <x>text <x>text</x><x>text</x> text</x> (space is removed) I understand why this is happening... I'm just looking for a way around it, if there is one. It becomes significant when the element nodes ultimately indicate text-range formatting, such as: <div>text <b>bold</b> <i>italics</i> text</div> ...which erroneously becomes "text bolditalics text." Thanks for any insight. Russ
