normalize-space() converts a run of newlines to a space.
Even if you kept a newline in the attribute value it would be reported
as a space by an XML parser when the result tree is used, so it may be
that using normalize-space is all you need.

Note also that

d-o-e is specified to have no effect on attribute values.

Otherwise it would probably be simpler to look to the definition of your
extension function
rather than try to correct teh output of that function with xslt1's
somewhat limited string handling.
