Subject: Whitespace in <indexterm>

Hi Everyone,

I'm using <indexterm> tags that are formatted like this for readability:

	This index entry is in
		<secondary>index entry</secondary>
	the middle of a paragraph.

FOP 0.93 creates a PDF file with unwanted whitespace in paragraphs that
use these index entries. FOP 0.20.5 rendered paragraphs containing these
same entries without whitespace.

I'm guessing that the behavior I saw in 0.20.5 was a bug (although it
was what I wanted), and that the behavior in 0.93 is the intended
behavior. I think this is because whitespace is significant in a
non-block element, and <indexterm> is a non-block element.

Can I change the behavior of FOP 0.93 to make it ignore the whitespace
within the <indexterm> tag? Based on a recent message from Manuel
it seems like I should be able to set an xsl:space value, but I don't
know where to set it or what value to give it--I can't find it
documented in Norman Walsh's _DocBook XSL Stylesheet Reference
Documentation_ or in Bob Stayton's _DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide_.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
