You need to define what a hard return is (There is no such concept in
HTML). I think you mean a <br/> element.

In which case take the replace every newline character by a
<br/> element.
This is a FAQ and there's code to do this replacement at the faq for
this list at

in a table if you want or just a div with a specified width.

yes see the above page

so putting it together you just want
<xsl:template match="xxxx">

      <div width="...">
      <xsl:call-template name="substitute">
         <xsl:with-param name="string" select="." />

where the substitute template is defined in the page quoted above.
