RE: Xsl:strip-space and xsl:preserve-space (XSLT 2.0)

Best, Pankaj Chaturvedi ============================================================================ ================ -----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, September 24, 2008 6:36 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: Xsl:strip-space and xsl:preserve-space (XSLT 2.0) I believe it's true that the AltovaXML processor always strips whitespace nodes (or calls the MSXML parser in a way that strips them) and I'm not aware of any way of changing this.
