   Re: [xml-dev] How to print multiple spaces in my document with XSLT

Actually that's a syntax error. there is no defined xsl:space attribute.
I assume you meant xml:space.

xml:space would be redundant here, xsl always treats space in xsl:text
as significant. As I said in the first reply  &#x20; is a space, so
the above will produce a run of three normal space characters in the
resulting html, as you'll see if you look at the result in a text
editor. Runs of spaces are rendered as a single space by an html
browser so if you look at the rendered result that is one space.

If you want to produce visible runs of white space you need to
use character 160 (for which html defines an entity nbsp).


This is only arginally on topic for xml-dev it would be better on
