There is normalize-space(), which does something like this: it removes leading and trailing whitespace and converts sequences of whitespace characters into single spaces. ("Whitespace" is defined as line feeds, tabs and spaces. Carriage return characters are normalized as line feeds by an XML parser, so don't appear.)

If you need something different you have to roll it by hand.

   Does anyone know if there is a function such as trim() that can be
applied on a text node, i.e., remove all leading and trailing white-space
('\t', '\n', '\r', ' ', '\f'), given the text node can contain non
white-space characters.
