Xalan -- and any other compliant XML processor -- will normalize line 
breaks of any sort to an XML "newline" before processing them. An XSLT 
stylesheet will process newline as text, unless you explicitly tell it 
otherwise. There's some good advice in Michael Kay's book on how to 
suppress undesired whitespace; I presume the FAQs for this list have 
equivalent advice...
