In the former case it's a bug in the system.

latter to <td/>,

even if it's a real space <td> </td> shouldn't get written using />

Well, if anyone has figured out a way to prevent XML Spy from changing
<textarea ... ></textarea> to <textarea ... />
<script ... ></script> to <script ... />
<td ... > </td> to <td ... />,
I would love to know about it. This changes happens when you use the auto-indent editing feature.
Also as I've said in a previous post, a &#160; in the stylesheet becomes an honest-to-God regular space in the result. This makes it difficult to put non-breaking spaces in HTML results without cheating and using the very sinful
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"><![CDATA[&#160;]]></xsl:text>. I'd love to hear a fix for that one too if anyone know it.
