However, the space is getting stripped, so the actual output is:
<div><p>here is some <b>bold</b>and<i>italic</i>text</p></div>

Any suggestions on how to prevent this?



Matthew,


What processor are you using?  The default behavior should be to preserve
space.

*xsl:strip-space* is used to override this default behavior and
*xsl:preserve-space* is used to override the overridden element names.

I ran your example with Saxon v8.6, Saxon v6.5.4 and Xalan v2.4.1.  These
processors are correctly maintaining the white-space nodes.


HTH,


Mike

Hello Mike,

I am using the XSL extension in PHP, which uses libxslt (http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/). I have tried using xslt:preserve-space but to no avail. I cannot seem to figure out what is causing this.
