I have xml elements that look like

<name>Mr Jones  </name>

<name>Mr       Jones  </name>

<name>Mr  
  Jones  </name>

Is there a way in XSLT to remove the white spaces and ctrl chars so that the result always looks like
<name>Mr Jones</name>

I only wish to have 1 space between 'Mr' and 'Jones'

Thanks

I ended up using the normalize-space function.

Seems to work ok
