You forgot the single quotes to indicate that it is a string rather than 
a node-set.

  <xsl:param name="titleLine" select="'Annual    report    for    xxxx'"/>

I see no reason why this wouldn't work. The default value of $titleLine
will be the string with all the spaces intact.

As Trevor indicated, perhaps you are emitting this string in an HTML
document and are confused by the fact that runs of whitespace in HTML
constitute a single word separator and are thus rendered with a single
space in Western writing scripts. You didn't say what the problem really 

<xsl:value-of select="translate($titleLine,' ','&#160;')"/> may be of 
some utility for you.
