Default Problem with Newline character

Hi
     I am using saxon to convert an xml file to a text output. To introduce a new line, I use the following code in the XSL:

<xsl:text>
</xsl:text>

But when I open the file using notepad, it shows the newline character as a small box like character. I even tried using <xsl:text>#10;</xsl:text>. But this also gives the same result....

Can anybody help....

Try this one for test

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:output method="text" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
    <xsl:template match="/">
            india<xsl:text>
            </xsl:text>japan
            korea#xa;america
            <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Notepad is I think one of very few remaining text editors that can't handle Unix line endings as well as Windows line endings. The XSLT 2.0 spec allows the serializer to change line endings to the preferred form for the target platform, but it doesn't require it: Saxon outputs exactly the characters that the stylesheet tells it to output, which in this case is a single newline character (i.e. a Unix line ending). If you want the Windows line ending you have to ask for it:

<xsl:text>#x0d;#x0a;</xsl:text>
