Keeping whitespaces in the XML
I am trying to keep the whitespaces and I thought xml:space="preserve" does it but it doesn't!
What should I do to see these whitespaces in xml?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<things> Lots of whitespace
and new linee</things>

Understanding xml:space. It preserves whitespace-only nodes, not all whitespace in general. (And only if the reader supports the attribute.)
How are you rendering the data?

Firefox. The source looks ok.

The source has all the whitespace?
Then this is the normal "HTML collapses all whitespace to a single space" problem. You can use CSS, a <pre>, or &#38;nbsp; entities.

Thanks. While I got you here, instead of making more threads I ask a questions about namespace URI identifire.
Is this true or false:
The URI does not neccessarily exist! It is only a string that may not even exist.
In the example below, hs could be equal to anything.
