RE:  space was stripping
I guess you are using Microsoft MSXML (or Internet Explorer). This is a
well-known "bug" in this product. You can get around it if you invoke the
MSXML parser explicitly from Javascript (there's an option to suppress
space-stripping), but the default when you just use the xml-stylesheet
processing instruction is to strip whitespace between elements. It's a pain,
the only real solution is to use a different browser. (Or, if you can change
your source XML, use a non-breaking space).
