Oh, I see: the problem isn't with the tab, it's that you have flattened the
rest of the markup. You need to process the subtree under <endnote> using
xsl:apply-templates, and then do your tab-insertion in a template rule:

<xsl:template match="endnote/text()[1]">
  <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(string(.), '. ')"/>
              select="substring-after(string(.), '. ')"/>

(or more simply, use replace()).

Your output appears to contain a tab character after the "1.", so it appears
to be exactly what you said you wanted.
