Attributes
@xml:space (optional) Allows one to signal to an application whether an element's white space is "significant". The behavior of xml:space cascades to all descendant elements, but it can be turned off locally by setting the xml:space attribute to the value "default". Allowed values are: " default" (Allows the application to handle white space as necessary. Not including an xml:space attribute produces the same result as using the default value.) , " preserve" (Instructs the application to maintain white space "as-is", suggesting that it might have meaning.) att.whitespace
