Re:  forcing non breaking spaces?

Does anyone know why my output has no indents or formatting?

Setting output method=html didn't do anything for this (not that it
would, I suppose).

That is an inappropriate use of d-o-e= in my opinion.

When I need to do the same I do the following:

<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet [
<!ENTITY nbsp "&#160;"> <!--known for HTML output, not in XML-->
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
<xsl:output method="html"/><!--use hardwired browser entities-->
<xsl:template match="/">                      <!-- root rule -->

I hope this helps.
