Robert, if you try your solution you make conclude, as I did, that the spacing offsets the listings nicely, rather than 'mixing' them too closely with the surrounding text? If you can rely on the linebreaks always being there this is probably true (or at least you can set the top and bottom margins for the display to take the blank line into account) however if sometimes it's there and sometimes not you get a more consistent appearance if you always remove the linebreak and then space accordingly. The solution in the quoted archive is a little more complicated than needed as you don't need to test starts-with($astr,'
') or starts-with($astr,'
')"> as there won't be any #xD or #xA#xD pairs as the XML parser normalises all line endings to #xA before XSLT starts.
