Re: remove white space
Is there any easy xslt function for removing white space in an element other than strip-space.
<xsl:strip-space> does not remove white-space in an element ... it removes white-space-only text node children of an element when found during the creation of the source node tree. If a text node has any non-white-space in it, then the entire text node is preserved.
This only happens at the construction of the source node tree.
I have an element which contains urls, some of which have white space in the middle of the url. Strip-space won't help with this.
To remove *all* white-space from any text string, say $abc, the following will work:
"normalize the white-space of $abc into single spaces and then translate the spaces into nothing, which removes them".
I hope this helps.
