RE: [xslt] whitespace around IMG tag

Sorry, I misunderstood your question.

I'm no XSLT guru, but libxslt's behavior seems reasonable, given that
indenting is on. It looks like it keeps an element all on one line if it has
at most one child. If an element has multiple children, it inserts a newline
after the start tag and another before the end tag. Any sort of
pretty-printing of SGML-derived documents (HTML, XML, etc) is as a rule
unsafe. It enhances readability (for humans) by introducing potentially
significant white space. In your shoes, I'd turn indenting off.

Others, more expert than I, may have other thoughts. (That's an invitation.)
