I'm using xsltproc with XHTML output in this case.

I don't see how indenting could ever work reliably.  The processor
doesn't know that <pre> in HTML output cannot be reindented, for
example.  The XSLT recommendation says that indenting is not safe with
mixed content, which is the case both in DocBook and in HTML.
