xml linefeed



Does anyone know how I can encode a raw line feed as part of XML element data such that

when the parser returns it to me the linefeed remains? 


Raw String:           Hello world\n    <-note trailing linefeed. 


I can encode it to:  <TAG>Hello world&#10;</TAG>


Returned string      Hello world  <-no trailing linefeed


My XML parser,  expat SAX, always eats the linefeed.   Carriage returns can be encoded fine and parsed fine.


Anything thing I have been able to find on XML char encoding always lists linefeed as an exception to the rules. I’ve tried CDATA – no luck. 


Any ideas or references?
