Saying indent="yes" in xsl:output allows the processor to indent the output
any way it chooses. If you don't want that, don't specify indent="yes"; you
will then get no extra whitespace in the output unless you create it
explicitly using <xsl:value-of> or <xsl:text>.

If you want more intelligent formatting, you can use Saxon in schema-aware
mode, validating the output against a schema. It will then avoid applying
indentation to elements that are defined in the schema to have a mixed
content model, which seems to be the effect you are looking for here.
