i bother with the handling of plain text in xslt. My problem is that i have to insert plain text combined with values to the output depending on if a node exists or not (which is a very common task i guess). So there are many xsl:if test=exists(...) statements inside my xslt.
1. Prob: White spaces If i have a xslt like this: ... <xsl:value-of select="Firstname"/> <xsl:value-of select="Lastname"/> ... I always get this output: ... FirstnameLastname ... How do i insert a white space between (these) two values?
2. Prob: Line Feed & Carriage Return The xslt: ... <person> <xsl:if test="exists(mds:node17)"> <name> <xsl:value-of select="node17"/> <xsl:if test="exists(node18)"> (<xsl:value-of select="node18"/>) </xsl:if> </name> </xsl:if> </person> ... This is the expected output: ... Lastname (Function) ... But this is the real output: ... Lastname (Function) ... How can i control if a linefeed is added or not? Is there a possibilty to remove or add a linefeed with xslt to the output?
Thanks, G. Hohmann
