If you need to remove all whitespace, including single spaces, there's

translate($node,' ','') after using normalisze-space()

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.
