    many thanks to all who replayed my question, I've choose to declare some properties that have defaults not matching my needs, they are: 

- linefeed-treatment = "preserve";
- white-space-collapse = "false";
- white-space-treatment = "preserve".  

it seems a simple and workfull solution

ha ve a nice time during the week end


PS: tomorrow will be a sunny day
