Why does my ouput get a "\n" put into my code when it goes to the built-in template.

Mine looks like:


    rules when you debug the stylesheet. For more information on built-in template rules see
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

    <!-- Built-in template rules for the mode "#default" -->
    <xsl:template match="* | /">
        <xsl:apply-templates />

    <xsl:template match="text() | @*">
        <xsl:value-of select="." />

    <xsl:template match="processing-instruction() | comment()" />


For example, the line <xsl:value-of select="." /> writes out the "/n" which is the white space of the xml file.  This does not cause me a problem but would like to prevent it from writing out out this "/n" or to just ignore it in my xsl file and not go to the built-in file.

How would I handle that?
