Hi Michael,
I am still using Saxon 9 -- I spent four years with it putting together a very complex and on-going project and have never had the nerve to update it. The bug you pointed out I recovered from with a second transformation (a simple copy with whitespace removal). All in all, I was able to complete this volunteer project for the Royal Philatelic Society London in less than 24 hours, thanks to the help so quickly offered on this list. I still must address the character set problem, but that is of a much lower priority.
Regards and thanks,

I wonder what Saxon release you are using? It looks like this old bug, fixed in 9.5:

Solved the problem by using a copy stylesheet that removed white space. Thanks for the help Guys, Mark
