Adam,
    I'm not quite sure I followed the gist of your original question, but
the following are legitimate characters in XML
Sect 2.2
Char ::=  #x9 | #xA | #xD | [#x20-#xD7FF] | [#xE000-#xFFFD] |
[#x10000-#x10FFFF]

and as you can see the  ASCII equivelents of 9,10,13,and 32(i.e. White
space) are all called legitimate characters.

    On the other hand if you look at name char, and check out  the letter,
the digit, the CombiningChar and the extender productions you will see that
they do not include whitespace.

[4]  NameChar ::=  Letter | Digit | '.' | '-' | '_' | ':' | CombiningChar |
Extender

Whether you can include white space or not depends on the notation.

On the other hand the literal string " abc " is ASC(32) +ASC(97) +ASC(98)
+ASC(99) + ASC(32)

Does this answer your question?

Frank
