I'm not sure I see the relevance to XSLT here...

But if you're using a schema-aware stylesheet with schema-validated input,
then using a type such as xs:normalizedString will cause the PSVI, and hence
the data model that XSLT sees as its input, to contain the string with
whitespace suitably normalized. (The normalization, incidentally, is not the
same as that performed by normalize-space()).
