By using the method="text" output method as in:

Your stylesheet is entirely in control of the "text format of the output"
... any PCDATA you put into your XSLT result tree is put to the output file
when using the text output method. Newline sequences and indentation you
have *properly* included in your stylesheet will be newline sequences and
indentation in the result. The caveat is that you need <xsl:text> to
preserve white-space in an XSLT stylesheet.
Note that elements and attributes of the result tree are ignored when using
the text output method ... just concentrate on getting the PCDATA correct.
I hope this helps!
