The other thing I would add to David's advice is, examine the "source" HTML that is generated, don't just look at how the HTML is rendered in the browser.

Hello all, I am having an odd issue and has been stuck on it for
some time. I am maintaining one of the existing xslts, that produces
html. The resulting text, is concatenated where there's a line feed
(x0A). for for example if I have in my xml:

<message>I love xslt</message>

and in my xslt: <xsl:value-of select="message" />

Then the results is:

I lovexslt

The result doesn't have space or line feed. The xslt is applied
through the JSTL  <x:transform>.

Thank you all.




I doubt there is enough information there to help.


XSLT doesn't do that so one of these is probably the case but impossible
to say which:

* There is a bug in your XSLT engine

* There is some other code in your XSLT that you haven't shown that
strips the white space.

* Something in the JSTL pipeline is tripping white space on input

* Something in the JSTL pipeline is stripping white space on output.

* Something else is wrong.

Start with a stylesheeet that _just_ does what you showed, if that
doesn't drop the space, gradually add things from your actual stylesheet
until things break....
