Handling of empty content and white space-only content?
I'm curious if XML says anything about how XML processors are to handle 1) empty content in an element, and 2) when the content contains only "white space" characters. If XML is silent, am I right to assume it is up to the application to decide how these situationas are processed and used? Examples: <foo></foo> <foo> </foo> Oh, and I've also been curious if there's any specified rules when parsed contain starts and/or ends with white space within an element. For example: <foo> some content </foo> Thanks! Mark -- Mark O. Zorro markozorro@f... -- http://www.fastmail.fm - Choose from over 50 domains or use your own
