RE: format <xsl:message> output . Newline inclusion or
-----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay Newline control in xsl:message is exactly the same as in any other XSLT output. If you don't want newlines copied from the stylesheet, use <xsl:text> around all the literal text strings in the message to prevent it. Possibly because its whitespace, I'm sure this point isn't appreciated. I know I didn't. I certainly wondered why the docbook stylesheets used xsl:text so much for output. My own early usage was to keep almost entire templates on a single line to get the output whitespace treatment I wanted. That is both undreadable and annoying. My non-DC logic is that if you don't want extraneous whitespace ensure that any text you add to the output is wrapped in <xsl:text> </xsl:text> Any non-xsl namespaced 'instructions' between the boundaries of a template <xsl:template match="x"> <xsl:apply-templates/> , </xsl:template> will be output. Two newlines, the comma and newline and the other two newlines. If you don't want it, <xsl:template match="x"> <xsl:apply-templates/> <xsl:text>,</xsl:text> </xsl:template> solves the problem since the additional content is now a part of an instruction to the tranform engine, not free template text. Its a silly one well worth understanding IMHO. regards DaveP. -- DISCLAIMER: NOTICE: The information contained in this email and any attachments is confidential and may be privileged.
