My problem is that my new xml-files produced by XSL removes the line breaks
from the text in my <field name="content">....</field> nodes when I use a
<xsl:copy-of select="." />.

the information that you have ^M^J (MSDOS) linebreaks is gone before XSLT even starts, the XML XML spec mandates that an XML parser normalises any of ^M, ^M^J and ^J to a ^J (#10) character.

Similar;y when serialising, a system can outbreak line ends in any of
these forms, although it seems most just use ^J always.

If your later application needs dos line ends it may be simplest just to
run something like unix2dos over the generated file.


I tried that but unfortunately it didn't do the trick. When I was at it I also tried to manually insert ^M chars in vim and load the file in mysql but that didn't help either. I tried changing the file to more appear like another working one but still couldn't get it to load with line breaks.

It seems mysql is very picky with the files it wants to load.
