I'm not seeing a line feed.

Check the character you have there very carefully, e.g. using a hex dump
or binary editor: maybe it's a non-breaking or thin space, and maybe
it's not defined in the character encoding you've specified in the XML
declaration in your input XML file.

Try running the XSLT transform on the command-line and seeing if there
are warnings.

Is the *actual* text "I love xslt" or is this just an example? Does the
actual text have an accented character just before or after the
"missing" space?
