RE:  Move leading/trailing spaces outside (XSLT 2.0)
I would do

<xsl:template match="e">
  <xsl:analyze-string select="." regex="^\s*.*?\s*$">
      <xsl:value-of select="regex-group(1)"/>
      <e><xsl:value-of select="regex-group(2)"/></e>
      <xsl:value-of select="regex-group(3)"/>

Not tested.
