No matter how many line-breaks are in the XML, or where they're placed, in IE the "normalize-space(text())" picks up the "B2" text

the other white-space characters (blank and tab) and the same thing happened. No white-space between the <BBB><CCC>,
FM//Xalan/Xerces get the "B2", any white-space between <BBB><CCC>, FM//Xalan/Xerces doesn't get the "B2" text.

The problem is that you call e.g.
so you call normalize-space on a node set of all child text nodes. That way you normalize white space in the first text node in the node set as converting the node set to a string takes the string of the first node only. I think what you want instead is e.g.
<xsl:for-each select="text()">
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/>
