Yes, I did, but that did not work. The reason I feel is that, from my understanding of xsl:strip-space, it eliminates the standalone white space from the document tree. But here the whitespace is actually embedded in the value of an element, which is why I believe it did not work in my case.

I am using xalan for xml to xml transformation. Input xml string has some DOS carriage return and/or line feeds introduced by the source application. The source xml string that I was trying to transform is like (exactly as is, including newlines)


i.e. the newline was probably getting included in the value of the
"attr". Would such newlines yield the empty output xml I was getting?
Xsl-strip space did not help. Finally, I had to write java code to strip
newlines from the source xml and then I started getting output xml

Our xsl is like

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<xsl:transform xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
version = "1.0">
<xsl:template match = "ABC">
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;!DOCTYPE
<xsl:template mode = "Attribs" match = "ctrInfo">
	      <xsl:element name="ADDR">

Please help...
