I've prepared two xml pages:
the other one can be reached by _Rudolph_II.xml (note the
underscore before the name).
The first xml uses a stylesheet href="../view_names.xsl"
(which has indent="no") the second uses href="../_view_names.xsl"
(which has indent="yes").
Can you see the difference in IE 6 ?

I believe this is a misunderstanding: whitespace elimination is
something that happens when the source is read in, not on serializing.
Maybe this is a bug, but I never had any trouble or noticed any
difference with this on or off. For serialization (i.e., reusing and/or
stringizing the DOM representation of the result tree), the indent=yes
has no effect whatsoever (just tested with some XSLT files, I did not
see a difference at all, neither with FF).

But maybe I am mistaken and there are situations where this is a
difference. Can you point me to some example?
