Re:  xml:space preserve on element converted to html  t
Indeed a non-breaking space, my technique for writing out the textarea is

<xsl:value-of select="concat(., '&#160;')"/>

Introducing the non-breaking space and guaranteeing that the textarea
is written out as a non-collapsed element.  Perhaps the better thing
to do is to shove the tags into the result from a CDATA section above
and below my value-of and drop the non-breaking space altogether.

I'll give that a try now.
