RE: [wtp-dev] XSL formatter stops formatting

Actually this will not work.  Why?  HTML ignores multiple spaces.
Example:  If you do "    " you will only get one space.  When you use
  it actually puts in a  .  There is a big difference.

I will keep an eye out in hopes that you will decide to make this a
priority.

Thanks,

Lance

When I use the command <xsl:text> it does not preserve the spaces.  Is
there some way to get around this issue as an XSL editor?

xsl:text be recognized by the formatter as a Preserve space element 
already. However, you can specifically tell it by adding the 
xml:space="preserve" attribute to the xsl:text element.

Again, I think we have to fix the formatter issue bug that was described

earlier in the XML Formatter to fix this. If you are using another 
formatter and doing reformatting with a stylesheet, you can and probably

should add xml:space="preserve" to the text elements. This article 
should help a bit:

Any other well-behaved xml-parser will also stop parsing the XML when
hitting this.

> The XSL formatter stops formatting when it encounters "&#xA0;".  This
would seem like a trivial issue but we have very complex XSLs.  If I
cannot get around this issue I don't think I will be able to use this
tool for XSL editing.  Is there something I can do to resolve this issue
in preferences?  Am I posting this issue to the correct place?
