I am using xsltroc (from libxslt 1.1.0). When I m trying to normalize
the space in certain elements, I got stuck since I couldn't figure out,
how to apply normalize-space() and apply templates for elements within a
node. Example:

 <para>Some text, that is
 wrapped several times, but
 should be one line in the
 output document. And which
 has -- to make it tricky --
 some Elements <emp>within</emp>
 which should also be processed.

If I write a template like this:

<xsl:template match="document">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="normalize-space(para)" />

It doesn't work. But if I do it this way:

<xsl:template match="document">
 <xsl:apply-templates select="para" />

<xsl:template match="para">
 <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(para)" />

It worked, but the inline element won't get processed.

Is it impossible, to do both things in one step?
