Title: RE: preserve space

"I need to output the text as it is formatted in the xml file."
WRONG!!! The particular structure of the data in an XML file does not have anything to do with "format". To consider it as "format" is a misconception.

Just my 2 cents...

Though I am not a Guru in this field, I suggest a small change in the xml structure
as well as in the xsl.
There may be other solutions. Decide which one would ease your building XML.

XML:
<ColorCode>
        <Code>Red</code>
        <Code>Blue</code>      
        <Code>Green</code>
<ColorCode>

XSL:
<xsl:for-each select="ColorCode">
        <fo:block>
                <xsl:value-of select="Code"/>
        </fo:block>
<xsl:for-each>

Subject: preserve space


Hi everyone,
I have an element with formatted text inside an xml file.
When I generate my pdf, all spaces, LF and CR are skipped
in the fo:block.
I need to output the text as it is formatted in the xml file.
I tried with <xsl:preserve-space elements="ColorCode"/>
in the xsl file, with space-treatment="preserve" in the
fo:block also, but that didn't resolve the problem.

exemple:
<ColorCode>
 Red
 Green
 Blue
</ColorCode>
my pdf shows:
  Red Green Blue
i need to see:
Red
Green
Blue


I would appreciate any help.
Thanks.
