The evidence you show does not indicate this to be true:

The result in html is

I have a similar case where I have a template for the element with similar
How can I avoid the whitespace between Bromarf and the comma?

The Recommendation does not provide for those spaces you are witnessing. You do not say which processor you are using, but the evidence as presented is that your processor is not conforming to the spec.

Section 5.8 of the spec explicitly indicates that no spaces are to be added:

  <xsl:template match="*|/">

So it sounds like a bug in your processor or there is a template rule in your stylesheet that is catching the element and adding the spaces to the result tree. Check for a template rule that matches all elements.

I hope this helps.
