Default XSLT transformation causes ^M

Hi all,

can somebody enlighten me as to why these ^M are introduced when transforming an XML file using XALAN.

Using: Win2k, J2SDK1.4.2 and ANT 1.5

I see these ^M as a character for end of line(EOF character) using a VIM or vi editor.

  <init target="Controller">^M
    <context key="TxId" type="ConstantValue" value="999000000"/>^M
    <context key="result-code" type="ConstantValue" value="Success"/>^M
    <context key="Quantity" type="ConstantValue" value="1"/>^M
    <context key="AmountValue" type="ConstantValue" value="19990000"/>^M

Hi I got some info. to my question. I see that XALAN processor replaces the new lines(or any whitespace characters) with ^M so is the case with VIM editor I see ^M character for EOL and this is not seen in a windows editors as the convention is different.

Control M is the code for carriage return in ascii. How are you serialising your xml?
