Re: [xml-dev] XSLT Preserve Space in Attributes

> is it possible to preserve space in attribute values when passing them to a

An XML parser will normalise space in attribute values, converting line
ends to spaces and collapsing multiple white space runs to a single

As XSLT only gets control after the parse, it can not control this
normalisation (but it doesn't do anything else with the attribute value)

If you need white space exactly to be preserved then it should not be in
an XML attribute (whether or not you're using XSLT), but mainly
javascript doesn't need this does it?
