Why do you care about the line breaks? Maybe it won't really matter. :-)
The reason you get a line break in the output is that there is one in the
<span class="smtext_bold"> <----- LF right here!
<xsl:apply-templates/> <----- and here!
You will probably get what you want with this change:
(NOTE - These leading ">" are NOT from quoting your post in this reply, they
are how the stylesheet should read.)
Now there are no extra line feeds or other whitespace to show up. The price
is that the stylesheet becomes less readable, so do it when everything else
