There isn't any such xslt attribute, not does it mean anything in xml unless
you write a processor that knows what to do with it.  And if there were, it
would normally be accessed using the "xsl" prefix (unless you used "xml"
everywhere that people usually use "xsl").  It's not an instruction to the
xslt processor.  So it just gets copied to the output.

You might have been thinking of <xsl:preserve-space/>, which must be a
top-level element, an immediate child of the xsl:stylesheet element.

When I use the xml:space attribute in my stylesheet, it carries over to
the resulting document.

For example:

<td xml:space='preserve'><img src='example.gif' /></td>

And I get the following:

<td xml:space='preserve'><img src='example.gif' /></td>

Is it possible to use xml:space so that it preserves the spacing, but
the attribute doesn't get carried over to the result?
