you're confusing me: You wrote that whitespace shall be ignore UNLESS xsl:text is used, but in fact, XALAN 2.7.1 does *not* ignore the white space, but actually INCLUDES it (check my 'Result...' comments below the examples)!

Or did I misunderstand what you liked to say?

White space _only_ text nodes are stripped. The 'when' element has a text node with white space and the character 'x' so in that case the text node is output with both the white space and the 'x'.
