RE: running msxml3 from command line

Excerpted from a previous response:

When we parse an XML document, we strip all non-significant (no xml:space in
scope) space by default and replace it with bit flags that mark where space
existed at one time (this cuts down the  memory footprint significantly).
When the document is passed to the XSL processor, the processor cannot
determine what whitespace was originally present within the xsl:text
element, so it outputs
a single space by default.  There are several ways to get the output you
desire, ordered from least expensive (in terms of parse time and memory
	- Use an entity to specify a significant whitespace character --
	- Use xml:space on the xsl:text element -- <xsl:text
xml:space="preserve">(CR here)</xsl:text>
	- Instruct the parser to preserve all space --
dom.preserveWhiteSpace = true before calling dom.load

FYI, if you're wondering if this is conformant, see my response to Mike
Brown's message earlier today.

After a little investigation on the dirtoftp.xslt stylesheet the problem is
with the xml:space="preserve" on the template <xsl:template match="/"
I added this as the only way to get all 3 (xt,saxon,msxml) to output crlf

<xsl:template match="/">open <xsl:value-of select="$host" />
<xsl:value-of select="$username" />
<xsl:value-of select="$password" />

I tried this

<xsl:template match="/">open <xsl:value-of select="$host" />
<xsl:value-of select="$username" />
<xsl:value-of select="$password" />

but only xt and saxon honoured the crlf (ok lf). msxml STILL doesn't honour
the crlf.
Does anyone know I can solve this?

TIA Chris
