[xsl] transforming from xml to text -- creates a blank line on the first line

Hi!

I'm running an xsl file that converts a xml file to a
text file (in InDesign Tags format) however there is
always a blank line on the 1st line on the output
which i think is reserved for the xml declaration. I
used omit-xml-declaration on xsl:output but the line
is still there, how can i remove that line?

Also, in generating the text output a lot of blank
lines are created how can i avoid these? Does the
xsl:apply-templates create an automatic newline?

XSL:

Gift-Giving: Psalm 68 in Ephesians 4:8
by
Timothy G. Gombis
Cedarville University
Abstract</head>
<q>The use of Psalm 68 in Eph. 4:8 has proved to be
one of the most di&ffilig;cult interpretive problems
in this enigmatic letter. In this article I will
engage and critique a leading interpretive proposal
and then o&fflig;er an alternative reading that
exploits the elements of divine triumph and divine
warfare in Ephesians, and that satisfactorily accounts
for the quotation and elaboration by the writer in vv.
9-10.</q>
<div1><head>1. <hi
rend="italic">Introduction</hi></head>
<p>The writer of Ephesians quotes Ps. 68:18 (MT 68:19;
LXX 67:19) in Eph. 4:8 in order to give scriptural
warrant for Christ&apos;s giving of gifts to the
church. The major interpretive di&ffilig;culty in this
text is that while in Ps. 68:18 Yahweh
&ldquo;receives&rdquo;
(&tavhb;&hethb;&qofhb;&lamedhb;;
&epsoxgr;&lgr;&agr;&bgr;&egr;&sfgr;) gifts from men,
in Eph. 4:8 Christ &ldquo;gives&rdquo;
(&epsoxgr;&dgr;&ohgr;&kgr;&egr;&ngr;) gifts to the
church, a change by the writer which, according to C.
L. Mitton, &ldquo;almost reverses the meaning of the
actual text.&rdquo;<note place="foot" n="1">C.L.
Mitton, <hi rend="italic">Ephesians</hi> (London:
Oliphants, 1976) 145.</note> It is also di&ffilig;cult
to discern just what the author means by speaking of
the descent and ascent of Christ, and what
relationship this movement has to the quotation from
Psalm 68. These problems are well-known, but thus far
have proved intractable. After surveying the current
interpretive options, P. T. O&rsquo;Brien concludes
that &ldquo;None of the above-mentioned suggestions
fully solves this di&ffilig;cult crux.&rdquo;<note
place="foot" n="2">P.T. O&rsquo;Brien, <hi
rend="italic">Ephesians</hi> (PNTC; Grand Rapids:
Eerdmans, 1999) 293. For a rehearsal of proposed
solutions, see R. Schwindt, <hi rend="italic">Das
Weltbild des Epheserbriefes: Eine

<hi rend="italic">Ephesians</hi> (ICC; Edinburgh:
T&amp;T Clark, 1998) 378-82.</note> After providing a
critique of what is currently a widely accepted and
well-supported interpretation, I will o&fflig;er a new
proposal regarding the use of Psalm 68 in Eph.
4:8.</p></div1>
