Oh, I'm glad you could find something to refute the evidence ... could you please show me in your experimentation how MSXSL does not strip white-space text nodes in the presence of an xsl:preserve-space instructions?

I posted last night that I was not able to get MSXSL to preserve white-space text nodes even when using xsl:preserve-space:

... so I would like to compare my results to your stated conclusion.

Whitespace-only text nodes are not of much use to a

Please review my post cited above for a real-world example of why my customers and I need white-space-only text nodes and why I am having problems with my customers' XML data in a Microsoft IE environment.

As Mr. Ken Holman originally pointed, this is a
non-conformance.. I also now feel so!

Indeed ... passing off the "problem" to the XML Processor in the XSLT processor does not exonerate the "XSLT Transformation Environment" from being non-conformant. I have a publishing problem in that I've been asked by my customers to present their data in a distributed IE browser environment, and in one case where up to 50,000 families in one State in the US are going to be browsing XML results, how can I give the presentation that I need for the mixed content?

Dimitre said,  there is a "preserveWhiteSpace"
property of IXMLDOMDocument.. But this I feel, is at
an API level..., which I feel does not ensure
conformance on this issue!

I agree, which prompted my post asking if anyone knew how to trigger this in the browser environment.

I hope this discussion has helped people understand the issue and answer the original question posted.
