It sounds as if your code has been written to depend on the well known MSXML
"bug" whereby whitespace is stripped from source documents without you asking
for it. You haven't shown your source document so it's hard to tell; but I
would guess that either <xsl:strip-space elements=*"/> to force this
whitespace stripping, or select="normalize-space(SOMETHING)", would do the


(a) it's a good idea to put literal text in the stylesheet inside <xsl:text>
elements, to get better control over formatting of the output

(b) putting text in CDATA makes no difference to anything unless the text
contains < or & characters that would otherwise need to be escaped.
