Default problem with empty block tag in xsl-fo and fop

i have the following template that goes through a text element and
preserves all breaking spaces.

<xsl:template name="nl2br">
<xsl:param name="StringToTransform"/>
<xsl:variable name="br">

<xsl:when test="contains($StringToTransform,$br)">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-before$StringToTransform,$br)"/>
<xsl:call-template name="nl2br">
<xsl:with-param name="StringToTransform">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-after($StringToTransform,$br)"/>

<xsl:value-of select="$StringToTransform"/>

To alter this to be able to be used in xsl-fo i change the <br/> tag to a <fo:block/> tag. However when i use fop to render the page to create a pdf document the empty block tags are not being preserved.

Does anybody know if there is a problem with FOP and empty block tags?
I have searched other fop groups but found nothing.Or is there a fundamental flaw in my template??

Thanks in advance Thea.
