[xsl] Xsl:strip-space and xsl:preserve-space (XSLT 2.0)
Date: 9/23/2008 10:50:00 PM
In my stylesheet, I am stripping all the spaces, new line character while using <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/> which works perfectly as desired. But now I've come across the requirement where I need to preserve spaces between the tags in few specific elements generally the punctuations(see below example) I tried to use the <xsl:preserve-space> to sort out this issue but doesn't seems to be working and "xsl:strip-space" seems to overcoming the effect of "xsl:preserve-space" effects. Can we use both to get their respective effects or simply they cannot be used together? Below is how they looks in my stylesheet: Snippet ======= <xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-functions"> <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/> <xsl:preserve-space elements="element1 element2"/> <xsl:output encoding="UTF-8" indent="no" media-type="text/xml" method="xml"/> -------------- -------------- -------------- -------------- -------------- </xsl:stylesheet> Example: <element1><surname>Dajnoki</surname>, <givenname>K.</givenname> (<year>2002</year>) <article-title>XXXXX YYYY</article-title>. <journal-title>ZZZZZZ XXXX</journal-title> <first-page>43</first-page>–<last-page>46</last-page>.</element1> Note: Spaces between the tags with any punctuation appears correctly (like in <surname>Dajnoki</surname>, <givenname>K.</givenname>) but fails in case of a single space between tags > < (for instance in </journal-title> <first-page> and results into the </journal-title><first-page> ) Below is how I have defined template for "element1" <xsl:template match="element1"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template> Any suggestion would be an immense help.
