Do you mean "the normal behaviour is to strip the WS text nodes", or "if we have <xsl:strip-space elements='root'/>" ? The second one, I guess ;-)

Here all the text nodes are merged into a single text node creating a sequence of length 1, so no separator is output. A bit of a trick question really....
