I wouldn't expect there to be, but I would expect that the line breaks in
the original would be there if you did viewed 'Page Source' in your web
browser or opened the XHTML in a text editor.

Neither approach is all that difficult, and the choice probably depends on
whether you need to show the indent of the second and subsequent lines:


     doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
     indent="yes" />

<xsl:template match="body">
    <pre style="font-family: serif">
      <xsl:apply-templates />

      <xsl:call-template name="add-br" />

<xsl:template name="add-br">
  <xsl:param name="text" select="." />

    <xsl:when test="contains($text, '&#10;')">
      <xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text, '&#10;')" />
      <br />
      <xsl:call-template name="add-br">
	<xsl:with-param name="text" select="substring-after($text, '&#10;')" />
      <xsl:value-of select="$text" />



<!DOCTYPE div PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <pre style="font-family: serif">Naam : Tamara Wobben
         Geboorte gewicht : 2000 gram
         Geboorte lengte : 44 cm.
