the appropriate attributes.)

As Michael Kay commented the other day on the xquery-talk list, in order to
pass many tests it is necessary to do more whitespace normalization than

after such normalization, a comment about normalize-space is inserted in

can't actually run this version of xq2xsl at present as the CR version
of the Xquery parser Java applet has still not been released but
