In XML whitespaces are normalized only in attribute values. Not in
element content. In XSLT you can normalize spaces manualy using
normalize-space() function, I think that function normalize is also
available in DSSSL.

Extra text nodes containing only white-spaces can be removed from source
tree in XSLT by using <xsl:strip-space elements="space seperated list of
elements from which white-space nodes should be stripped">.
