Many XML documents seems to assume text will be normalized, but a way to formally say so would be, it seems, good. Should the author of the XML vocabulary define a <space> parameter to be included in a header section of the XML file? or say to encoders and application authors, "Applications should normalize text and encoders can assume they will." Or is there already some convention on what xml:space="default" implies will happen? -- John
