I'm not sure what you mean (the problem/symptoms are not very clear
IMHO). By guessing, though, I'd say you are using "xml:space" set to
"preserve", which would in fact place a space in the second line. This
is the expected behavior AFAIK [1]. Note that the default behavior
(without "preserve") would cause the paragraph not to break, therefore
typically being displayed in a single line.

I've quickly picked up from your sample and created a comparison
(with/without the property): I'm attaching a screenshot of the result
using "amaya 11.3 (Sep 9 2009)".

Hope this helps,
