Re: Question re: unwanted whitespace and html output

You're right, I was too hasty.  The situation arises if there are some
non-element characters on a line after an element, but not if there is only
whitespace.  So if the original template had been

<xsl:template match="b">
  <span class="smtext_bold">-

then there would have been a line feed in the output which might not have
been wanted.  Sorry for the error.
