Whitespace problem in IE5

Whitespace problem in IE5
I'm transforming XML to HTML via XSL using IE5. 

I've got an XML element for which I would like to preserve the whitespace
upon output to HTML.

For example, I'd like the following XML fragment:

<codelisting>
<sourceline>
    if ( x  ==    "testcase") {
</sourceline>
<sourceline>
        o.method(x);
</sourceline>
<sourceline>
    }
</sourceline>
</codelisting>

Viewed in the browser as:

    if ( x  ==    "testcase") {
        o.method(x);
    }

My output font is monospaced, and I've tried using both the stylesheet
attribute:

<xsl:stylesheet default-space="preserve"> and the element attribute:

<sourceline xml:space="preserve">.

What I get is:

if ( x  ==    "testcase") {
o.method(x);
}

While the whitespace within a line is preserved, all of the leading
whitespace characters (spaces and tabs) are removed :(

Any ideas?

Thanks,
