Synopsis

```` `
`<xsl:variable name="v:verbatim-space"`

`   <xsl:value-of select="substring(\$verbatim-space || ' ', 1, 1)"/>`

Description

When a verbatim line has to be padded in order to get a callout to appear in the correct column, this character will be used as the padding character. For a discussion of verbatim elements and styles, see Section 4.3, Verbatim styles.

This character is usually constructed from the `\$verbatim-space` parameter. Unlike the `\$verbatim-space`, this variable must be a node not a string.
