XSLT Preserve Space in Attributes
is it possible to preserve space in attribute values when passing them to
a XSLT processor?
from reading specs and testing transformations myself (using
Xalan/Xerces) it seems that <xsl:preserve-space>, <xml:space>
and CDATA sections all apply to elements and text nodes, not to the text
content of attributes.
document element with the Xalan XSLT processor, and the result text
output does not execute. It seems to me that this is because
<xsl:value-of> is converting the code to a string. When I copy and
paste the code from the XML to the text document the code executes OK.
However I need to be able to "grab" the code with XSLT, so is
there a way to do this or do I need to tell the XML authors that the code
should be in a text node rather than an attribute?
thanks in advance
