Single-versus-double-quotes on attributes has become my canonical example of a lexical bit in XML that can be useful for some kinds of text-level processing even though (especially because) it's not considered important by XML parsers. Space between attributes can be handy as well, though it has the disadvantage of being tricky to measure by eye when there are more than one.
