Because you're viewing HTML in a browser.  HTML compresses all white space
to a single space when displayed.  If you want to preserve the spaces when
displayed, you need to change them to non-breaking spaces (&#160; is the
easiest XML format).

I am using MSXML3 running in replace mode on NT.
I'm doing a server side parse of XML and XSLT in VB as such(viewing in


My xml contains white space and line breaks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Careers_List xml:space="preserve" >
		<jobTitle>Java Developer</jobTitle>
		<Description>We are seeking 
		ng an experienced Java               Developer to take
charge of Interface  

The problem is my Description element text still outputs like this:
"We are seeking an experienced Java Developer to take charge of Interface

No white space or line breal preservation. Why is this happening?
