OK, to be more precise, the problem I think I'm seeing is that,
using an XML example, like this:

  <SOURCE href="http://www.quotesrus.com/">
  <LINE>This is line 1 of the quote</LINE>

I would expect (using SAX) to receive an ignorable() event when
the end of the opening QUOTE tag is reached, and the "\n " string
found.  I'm not seeing that, using the DXP implementation.  Should
I?  I'm not sure if I see what circumstances actually alert
a parser that, yes, this whitespace is *not* significant.  I
know it is supposed to pass the data to the application, but the
data is also supposed to be flagged, correct?
