sorry. if you stay on this list long enough you'll find my typing is not

I mistyped, it was intended to take the last character of the
original string and compare it to space or newline and add a space
if needed but substring(.,string-length(.)-1 is teh last two characters
of the string not the last character you want
ie remove both cases of -1 from what I posted.

No, it's testing the string value of "." ie the original text node.
