Saxon html includes unwanted white space in anchor tag

html includes
I'm having trouble when trying to use an html image tag inside an anchor tag
using the following stylesheet:

----------------------------
<xsl:stylesheet
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"
    xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon"
    extension-element-prefixes="saxon">

<xsl:output method="html"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
    <html><body>

    <a href="#"><img border="0" src="image.jpg"/></a>

    test text
    </body></html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
----------------------------

The saxon v5.1 processor ( when run via the StyleSheet class on the command
line ) generates the following HTML:

----------------------------
<html>
    <body>
        <a href="#">
            <img src="image.jpg" border="0">
        </a>

    test text
    </body>
</html>
----------------------------

The trouble here is that there is white space after the image tag but within
the anchor tag and when rendered this appears as part of the hyperlink (ie,
the link extends beyond the image).  The Lotusxsl processor (v0.19.1)
produces the following HTML which works fine as there is no unwanted white
space in the anchor:

----------------------------
<html>
<body>
<a href="#"><img src="image.jpg" border="0"></a>

    test text
    </body>
</html>
----------------------------

Can anyone give me some guidance as to how to make this work right using the
Saxon processor?

Thanks!

Michael
