If you don't mind compressing all whitespace, then

<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/>

which remove the beginning, trailing and compresses all
runs of spaces to one.

If you really only want to remove whitespace from just the
beginning and end, then that's a little harder to do in
XSLT 1.0 vs. XSLT 2.0 which has regular expressions.
