I just replied with a regexp matching a string of tabs but actually I
realise I don't understand the question.

  I need to write a template matching text nodes, which just consit of
  multiple whitespaces (tabs in most cases).
  I cant't use normalize-space since I need leading and tailing
  whitespaces in some cases.

why does needing leading white space in the case that the node is not
all white stop you using normalize-space in the test?

<xsl:template match="text()[not(normalize-space())]">

just matches text nodes that are white.
