The mail client or the list server, has probably mis-rendered my source. It is <WebLink url="">XML</WebLink>-based single-sourcing. I removed http and :// from the url attribute to avoid rendering it wrong again. XML here is pure text. When the fo:inline is removed, it displays normally as: ... XML-based ..., but there is no attribute provision for fo:basic-link to color text blue as in any web link...

I've added the element WebLink to xsl:strip-space to overcome, but didn't work.

The source XML is:

employing <WebLink url=""; <>>XML</WebLink>-based single-sourcing.

This input is not well-formed since the WebLink start-tag has "<>" inside it.

When your input is not XML, it's surprising you can get any output.

The Saxon generated FO is:

employing <fo:basic-link external-destination=""; <>> <fo:inline color="blue" text-decoration="underline">XML</fo:inline>
</fo:basic-link>-based single-sourcing

The output is also not well-formed.

There's definitely something odd going on because you've managed to
split the ">XML" text to insert the fo:inline start-tag.
