Default xsl:output and removing space in XML

Hi All,

Following is my Output XML

            <x> </x>

Used XSL
<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="iso-8859-1" indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes" />

Required XML
<author><fname>clive</fname><x> </x><surname>webb</surname></author>

As you see in the output xml elements and contents were indent due to xsl:output with indent="yes" if it was "no" the output come in a single line. But my request is that I would like to get the out as shown in required XML were I would like to pass the syntax in XSLT, is there any syntax that we can pass? .

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

You will have to switch off automatic indenting and generate the required newline characters yourself. You can output a newline using
