I want to know how to insert a line breaks in the below xsl template:

the required output format is like this:
ORDER=text|text|text
ACCOUNT=text|text|text etc....
EXTRA=text|text|text
LINE=ORDER=text|text|text
LINE=ORDER=text|text|text


------------------------------------------------------
Current format shows up like this:
ORDER=text|text|text ACCOUNT=ORDER=text|text|textEXTRA=text|text|textLINE=ORDER=text|text|textLINE=ORDER=text|text|text

Any assistance on this would be great.

<xsl:text>&#10;</xsl:text>
or
<xsl:text>&#13;&#10;</xsl:text>


<xsl:text>
</xsl:text>
should work as well, but maybe your XSLT gets processed one way or another before parsing, my suggestions are safer

Also just to note the i was using <xsl:text>&#13;</xsl:text> but as you mention the XSLT may go true some processing that I have overlook...anyhow the second solution <xsl:text>&#13;&#10;</xsl:text> solved my problem.
