Default remove spaces between strings

Hi frnds
This forum is very useful for me, as I got solutions to most of questions.
Now I need one more help. I have a string in xml for example "this is my string". My xsl should remove whitespaces in between them . the output should be like "thisismystring"

Thumbs up

For your input <Section>This is my string</Section>, use the below template.

<xsl:template match="Section">
<xsl:value-of select="replace(., ' ', '')"></xsl:value-of>

If you're using version 1.0 then use the translate function instead:
translate(" ", "")
So all spaces are translated to an empty string.
