Thanks.  Oddly enough, though according to MS' docs:

Section 2.10 says that xml-space can be specified on any element controlling
whether white space is preserved or normalized. The default is to normalize
white space (which means unify all white space characters down to a single
space). To preserve whitespace set xml-space to preserve, and this is
inherited down the hierarchy. To switch back to the default, set xml-space
to default


Well, nomatter what I do it doesn't seem to do anything with the xml-space
attribute.  Moreover, it doesn't seem to actually set the attribute for any
of my elements.  For example, getAttribute(...) always returns null for
