RE: Stripping spaces with XSL

To normalize space in element-name, try normalize-space(): [1]

<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(element-name)"/>

Normalization of space removes leading and trailing whitespace and smashes
sequences of more than one whitespace into a single space.

Good luck,

Subject: Stripping spaces with XSL


I want to strip all spaces (ie each sequence of spaces get into a single
space and trailing spaces are removed). I'm using the xsl:ouput element to
tell that I want to use the "text" output method. And I use the
xsl:strip-space element to tell on which element space should be stripped.

Despite this I still get uncessary spaces in the output. Both with xalan
(java version) and xsltproc (aka libxslt from Daniel Veillard used by

What did I miss ?


PS: Xalan-java is version 2.0.1. xsltproc is 0.9.0.
