No. As I stated before, msxsl's implementation of xsl:strip space is exactly the same as saxon an xalan (and is the only possible one by any normal reading of the specification, it really is not at all ambiguous.) The MS XSLT engine is conformant. It is the MS XML parser which removes space (in what's described as an optimisation) when building the tree. So it has nothing to do with XSLT: the space is gone if you inspect the tree with DOM calls or anything else, it is just unconditionally dropped while parsing. If you search the archives of this list you'll see this is a faq. David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
